The Holbeck

Jenkinson Lawn, Leeds, LS11 9QX

Presented by China Plate & Staatstheater Mainz

Written by Chris Thorpe, developed with and directed by Rachel Chavkin

Commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre, Warwick Arts Centre and Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg.

We all have a nationality.

Or almost all of us.

Status is a show about someone who doesn't want his any more. About
running away from the national story you're given. About who is responsible for that story and what might happen to it if you give it up.

A globe-spanning journey of attempted escape, with songs along the way.

“… the words are eloquent, the music essential and powerful, and the performance full of a brilliant, prowling precision…” Scotsman Fringe First Award Winner 2018««««

Supported by the British Council, Goethe-Institut London, the Collaborative Touring Network and using public funding by the national lottery through Arts Council England.

About The Holbeck

The Holbeck is a community club that welcomes everyone, run by Slung Low.

Our address is The Holbeck, Jenkinson Lawn, Holbeck, LS119QX

This show is “Pay What You Decide” - you decide how much to pay after you have taken part.

The show has a limited capacity, so if you change your mind before the event, please let us know by emailing boxoffice@slunglow.org to ensure we don’t turn others away unnecessarily.

Please note that the venue is cash only.

This event takes place up one set of stairs. There is a new stairlift on our main staircase. We have recently taken over the running of the venue and are currently raising funds for a lift to make the theatre fully accessible. If you would like to discuss your access requirements, don’t hesitate to give us a call on 0113 226 0808.

There’s a free car park at the club. The street immediately around the club is permit-holders only but there’s permit free parking on Holbeck Moor Road, which is the road that runs alongside the park just down the road.
