In our increasingly busy lives we no longer make time to spend together.

Embark on an adventure where two generations make time to share a meal and a conversation. This intergenerational performance nourishes the palate and the soul as we discover what we can learn from each other at dinner time. Dinner 18:55 is a project from Leeds Playhouse’s Creative Engagement department, who use theatre to open possibilities for people of all ages and backgrounds.

In October 2018 Leeds Playhouse invited young people and older people to collaborate together as part of a new intergenerational project. Over the next six months, the 18 strong company from Leeds City Region, including participants from Leeds Playhouse’s Older People’s Programme and Youth Programme, worked together to devise Dinner 18:55. Discovering their similarities and working through their differences, the company found friendship and inspiration, as well as discovering unbounded creativity when working together.
