|Take an exclusive look inside The Incident Room!|
|Watch this special preview of the first of two hard-hitting shows about The Yorkshire Ripper case, playing at BLT this month.|
|Opening Friday 10th November – book now!|
|Set in Leeds in 1975, The Incident Room is a forensic and gripping examination of the five-year police hunt for the Yorkshire Ripper. With public pressure mounting, the investigators resorted to increasingly audacious attempts to catch one of Britain’s most notorious serial killers. A huge success both in Edinburgh in 2019 and later at the New Diorama Theatre, don’t miss this remarkable play on the BLT stage!|
|And book now for our companion show in the Bar:|
|Between 1975-80, women of Leeds lived in fear of The Yorkshire Ripper. A steadfast solidarity arose, birthing the Reclaim the Night movement which echoes down the generations to this day. The perfect complement to The Incident Room.|
|Also coming soon and booking now:|
|1558 (or two minutes to four in the afternoon if you prefer) and Elizabeth I has ascended to the throne just in time for tea. Lord Edmund Blackadder (the bastard great-great-grandson of the original) attempts to win her favour despite the efforts of his ineffectual acquaintances, notably the idiot Percy, and his mediocre mess of a manservant, Baldrick.|
|Get your boogie shoes on for our next Sounds of Sundays show:|
|Sunday 10th December. Tickets just £10!|
|Southern Aces play good-time, soul and R&B, boogie & blues, with scorching sax solos, slide-guitar, harmonica, keyboards and accordion, a super-tight rhythm section and great vocals. The mood is up-and-dancing and the inspiration is the music of New Orleans, Memphis, Texas and Chicago. So put on your glad-rags & your dancing shoes and Let The Good Times Roll!|
|The future of our theatre. Could you play a crucial role in it?|
|BLT recently announced a major funding project to raise £85,000 from our members and supporters. We also need to raise a further £400,000 from Trusts, Foundations and the National Lottery. Unfortunately, the fund-raising team focused on this has unexpectedly lost two of its key members and we urgently need to find people to take their places. Could you be one of them? |
