Written by Horace Vachell, the play is set in the world of the fictional antiques dealer Joseph Quinney. It was a major hit on its release in 1915.
The new production, the first in more than 70 years, is part of the Arts & Humanities Research Council-funded project The Year of the Dealer led by Dr Mark Westgarth at the University of Leeds and is being performed by the university’s student actors. A film version of the play will be premiered at a cinema in Leeds and possibly London in November or December.
The loaned antiques are needed for up to four days during the week starting June 28.
A small budget has been allocated for transport with the objects covered by the university’s insurance policy and acknowledged in any associated publicity.
A Charles II walnut chair and a Charles II lacquer cabinet on stand are among the antiques still needed.
