Whatsonstage.com/northeast is excited to bring you an exclusive peek at West Yorkshire Playhouse’s shots from their stylish photo shoot for The Count of Monte Cristo.

Shot on location in the beautiful gentleman’s club at 3 Albion Place in Leeds, in these images photographer Keith Pattison captures an edgy, alternative view of the six-strong cast, and the characters they play in Alexandre Dumas’ thrilling tale of duelling, dancing and the ultimate cost of revenge.

Graphic Designer John McAreavy has enlivened the photographs with innovative, modern splashes of primary colour, to whet our appetites for the exciting new production, taking to the stage at the Playhouse’s Courtyard Theatre from 16 April.
