All I Wanted Was A Doll
Play by Brian Daniels
This play is a celebration of Riley Theatre’s Jewish heritage as a working synagogue and it was commissioned by Leeds Jewish Welfare Board to commemorate their 140th anniversary year. Written by Brian Daniels, it tells the story of the earlier Jewish immigrants to Leeds.
