Peter Gill's The York Realist, which opened at the Royal Court on Jan. 8, has extended its limited four-week run. The play, which has received great reviews, will now stretch a week longer closing on Feb. 9.

The York Realist, written and directed by Peter Gill, is essentially a gay love story set in York in the 1960s. In a time of social change, a production of the York Mystery plays brings together George, a local farm labourer, and John, a young theatre director from London. It is a meditation on art in general and, in particular, the working class theatre tradition begun by "the York Realist" - the anonymous author of the traditional plays.

The play has received consistently strong reviews and has been a personal triumph for writer/director Peter Gill.

For tickets and further information call the Royal Court Box Office on 0207 565 5000.
