Bright Sparks Theatre Company work with adults with learning disabilities from Leeds and make original shows. This new play is made in collaboration with members of Leep1 and Aspire CBS. It is called, ‘Sheets Across The Streets’; and is a story about the history and people of Leeds.
Sitting in Leeds Playhouse Café with a book and a brew, Albert looks out on the view. It’s the same view that he used to have from his flat in Quarry Hill. He looks at his photograph book and remembers his long life in Leeds; and how things have changed. Through song, dance, movement and drama, we explore themes of friendship, struggle, love and loss. At the end of the play, we look at what we can all be proud of in Leeds today and celebrate all the things that we have in common.
