Next Meetup

Let's meet up to read a play
We'll be reading the play in Leeds Central Library. You'll find out what play we'll read on the day so no preparation is required. There is no charge for this event. Please RSVP if you'd like to come and take part. If you later find that you can not come, please could you change your RSVP at least a day beforehand if possible? This way anyone on the waiting list can take your place. Thanks! Please aim to arrive on time so as not to miss out on introductions. Occasionally we may need to cancel sessions due to circumstances beyond our control. Although we do not expect this to happen this week, we will let you know as soon as possible if this happens. Please check the website nearer the time for confirmation that the session will be running. Hope to see you there!

What we're about

Hi there, welcome to Leeds Play Readers! We meet regularly to read a play chosen from the stock at Leeds Central Library. We're open to all, from people with no previous experience to professional actors.

It's a great way to enjoy plays as well as to develop confidence in speaking. You'll be introduced to plays and playwrights that you might not have come across before. After each reading you will have the opportunity to share your ideas about the play. You'll find out what play we'll read on the day so no preparation is required.

The group runs as a collective with members choosing a different play each week, while maintaining a breadth of playwrights over the sessions.

You can get as involved as you like; it's fine just to turn up and join in. We'd also like to start organising social events such as trips to the theatre and evenings watching films related to plays we've read.

So whether you've lots of experience of theatre or are thinking of trying something new, why not pop along?
