A PLAY featuring Huddersfield is to be staged in the Serbian capital, Belgrade.
The play, called Huddersfield, was written by Serbian playwright Ugljesa Sajtinac.
It tells the story of a group of young Serbs who celebrate the return of a friend who has been in Huddersfield for 10 years.
As the friend tells his story, the group's members re-assess their lives in a county ravaged by a decade of political unrest and war.
Ugljesa, 33, was inspired to write his play after visiting Huddersfield in 2000.
He was attending a reading of his play The Propsmaster at the Festival of European Contemporary Plays at Huddersfield University.
It was the first time he had been to Britain. After just three days he returned home to Zrenjanin - in Serbia's northern province Bojbodina - to write Huddersfield.
It was translated into English by Manchester playwright Chris Thorpe and premiered at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds last year.
Now it is to be staged at Belgrade's Yugoslav Drama Theatre, with the opening night scheduled for early March.
It will be directed by West Yorkshire Playhouse's literary manager, Alex Chisholm, who will work with a Serbian cast.
She said: "Huddersfield has become one of the most successful new plays premiered at the Playhouse, receiving interest from around the world.
"I am excited and proud to be asked to direct this play in Serbia and bring a bit of West Yorkshire to Eastern Europe."
It will be her first directing project outside the UK.
