Jude Kelly

This week the castaway on Desert Island Discs is the theatre director Jude Kelly. Currently based at the West Yorkshire Playhouse - which under her creative directorship has become The National Theatre of the North, Kelly is known for her enthusiasm to bring the arts to everyone, and embracing new ideas in the creative arts.

In conversation with Sue Lawley, she talks about her life and work and chooses eight records to take to the mythical island.
