Alumni success: Orange Horse Productions

Six alumni from our Masters programmes have found recent success representing Leeds and the local area with theatre company Orange Horse Productions.

Orange Horse, a recently formed theatre company by Alumna Karen Richardson, are performing six engaging plays reflecting life in a different era in Leeds as part of an anthology of one-act plays. “Postcards From the Ages” will feature plays all written, directed and performed by locally-based creatives.

Five of the writers are alumni of MA Writing for Performance and Publication (now MA Writing for Performance and Digital Media) at the School of Performance and Cultural Industries; Karen Richardson, Heather Buckby, Gaby Ellis, Katrina Quick and Charlotte Dalrymple. Another alumnus, Ben Erwin, is also involved in the production.

Producer Karen Richardson said: “We’re thrilled to bring this exciting production of six new plays to The Holbeck, written by and starring locally-based talent. It’s a real look down memory lane through touching, witty and hard-hitting drama.”

‘Postcards From The Ages’ will be performed in the upstairs theatre at Slung Low At The Holbeck, Jenkinson Lawn, Leeds LS11 9QX on November 27, doors open at 7pm and the show starts at 7.30pm.

Ticket bookings and further information about the anthology and production is available via eventbride.
