Presented by the University of Leeds Theatre & Performance students as part of the Year of the Dealer project.

Quinneys is a comedy-drama of love, money, social climbing and fakes and forgeries set in the world of antique dealing.

Written in 1914 by Horace Annesley Vachell (1861-1955) and based on the real-life antique dealer Thomas Rohan (1860-1940), the play tells the story of Joseph Quinney, a hard-nosed antique dealer, stubborn but endearing and keen to see his daughter marry well.

The performance of Quinneys is part of ‘Year of the Dealer’, an Arts & Humanities Research Council project organised by the University of Leeds. Directed by George Rodosthenous with actors from the Theatre & Performance programme at the University of Leeds, the play was hugely popular in its day and this performance will be the first in more than 50 years.

Your £5 includes an invitation the wine reception from 6.30 pm.
