The Damned United

This event has passed

Red Ladder Theatre present

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.

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.
