Radio 4 – Opening Night, Leeds

BBC Radio 4’s Opening Night come from a different regional centre each month. For the June episode Lindsey went back to her theatrical routes in Leeds to explore the role of women, both on and off stage. Lindsey went behind the scenes of the West Yorkshire Playhouse’s world premiere adaptation of the bestselling novel The Girl on the Train, starring Jill Halfpenny. She also met a team of young women theatre makers who’re putting unsung women front and centre stage, and she examined how feminist politics are being played out in conventional and unconventional theatrical spaces.
