David played Ritchie/Bug in My Generation at West Yorkshire Playhouse.
Set in Leeds, My Generation is the story of a family and a city through 40 years of alternative culture. From the fear, tension and radical feminism of Leeds during the Yorkshire Ripper, the disillusionment of the Miners’ Strike, the drug fuelled hedonism of the 90s and finally the instability and possibilities created by today’s economic crisis.
Heartbreak, betrayal and coming out scrapping when all you’ve got left is pride – My Generation follows people who tried to live differently.
Written by award-winning TV writer Alice Nutter, founder member of British band Chumbawamba, this new play was underscored live with an explosive mash-up of live popular music from the four decades, performed by the cast and house band.
