Sheets Across The Streets
was our new show for 2022, with three shows at stage@leeds performed to over 200 people.
The story is about the history and people of Leeds.
Our play was made in collaboration with members of Leep1 and AspireCBS.
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, Bright Sparks new show for 2022 explored themes of friendship, struggle, love and loss. The story made people laugh and cry. 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.
