The York RealistDonmar Associate Robert Hastie, who delighted Donmar audiences with his celebrated productions of My Night with Reg and Splendour, directs a timely revival of Peter Gill's affecting drama about two young men in love, set against the backdrop of 1960s Yorkshire. The all-star cast includes Jonathan Bailey (who's appeared in Broadchurch, Crashing and as Will's love rival in W1A), Ben Batt (Joe Pritchard in Channel 4's Shameless) and Lesley Nicol (better known as Mrs Patmore in Downton Abbey) star in The York Realist, a Donmar Warehouse and Sheffield Theatres co-production about love and family ties.

 

About The Donmar Warehouse

Housed in an impressive red-brick industrial building - at various times a brewery, a banana warehouse and a film studio - this tiny repertory theatre is one of the great success stories of the 1990s. Created as a studio space for the RSC in 1977, it became a shabby but popular fringe theatre in the 1980s, a testing ground for producers with big ideas but little money.
