Birthday party invite at Ilkley Playhouse

Here I Belong opens at Ilkley Playhouse 8 February

Elsie’s 90th birthday party is at Ilkley Playhouse from the 8 to the 12 February and everyone's invited!

Here I Belong, Matt Hartley’s moving and warm hearted play tells Elsie’s story over six decades from the Coronation in 1953 to her birthday on the night of the performance.

Share in this event where Elsie’s life, her relationships and the right to grow old in her own home is touchingly played out on stage. The play celebrates village life, companionship and community whilst highlighting the challenges faced by people living in rural areas.

The play originally toured in 2016 and has been described as “a charming, uplifting meditation on rural life, community and growing old".

Please note that performances on 8th February (opening night) and 11th February will be socially distanced.
