James Brining, artistic director of Leeds Playhouse, said: “This is a fantastic reimagining of a literary classic, which has created major waves in Scotland. Set to an infectious soundtrack it is a beautiful, unique mix of humour and history. We’re delighted to be sharing this much-loved story of six powerful young women with the audiences of Leeds.
