Down the stairs…

Along the corridor…

Round the corner…

Into the dressing room…

HIS dressing room.

Hateful, hateful place. Spiteful, spiteful place. Dirty, dirty Leeds.

1974. Brian Clough, the enfant terrible of British football, 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 ingenious 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.

“a brilliant production for both football fans and theatre lovers.” Threeweeks Edinburgh

‘… a tribute to an era-defining genius, a portrait of a man terminally wrapped-up in his own bravado… a bloody good story about sporting rivalry.’ The Stage, ★★★★
