Old Woollen – Taxi – Hold on Tight

August 10, 2023 - August 20, 2023

Thursday 10 – Sunday 20 August 2023
Old Woollen, Farsley, Leeds

Hold On Tight!
This explosive fusion of theatre and dance will take you on a thrilling ride you will never forget.

Leeds. So many people. So many stories.
I see you at your best and worst, but you don’t even know my name – I’m just TAXI.

£13 – £15 + Booking Fee. Various Times. Unreserved seating.

TAXI sees the streets of the city in all their visceral glory. He meets so many people but knows no-one: a silent observer of the best and worst of humanity.

Written by Andrea Heaton (Smile Club, Football Freddie), the show is based on the experiences of co-director Douglas Thorpe (Phoenix Dance, mad dogs dance theatre) as a cab driver, taking the audience on a breakneck journey through the underbelly of Leeds as we encounter an array of fascinating characters and their compelling stories. TAXI will also be the final production of Red Ladder’s Artistic Director Rod Dixon, following a 17-year career with the company.

Captioning is available via The Difference Engine, a tool that enables Deaf and hard-of-hearing people to read performance captions on their phone.
