Ripon Theatre Festival – The Damned United at Ripon Bowling Club
24/06/2022 - 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
1974. Brian Clough tries to redeem his career and reputation by winning the European cup with his new team, Leeds United. The team he has openly despised for years, the team he hates and which hates him. Don Revie’s Leeds.
Adapted from David Peace’s brilliant and inspired novel, The Damned United takes you inside the tortured mind of a genius slamming up against his limits, and brings to life the beauty and brutality of football, the working man’s ballet.
After a sell-out 2016 premiere run at West Yorkshire Playhouse, The Damned United is back – in a striking new version for football and theatre fans alike. The Damned United is presented by Red Ladder, the Leeds-based radical theatre company with over 50 years of history, and acknowledged as one of Britain’s leading national touring companies producing new theatre.
Running time approximately 70 minutes, (no interval).
