WE'RE BACK UNDERGROUND!
And extraordinarily excited to share with you eight brand new PLAYs as a finale to our Subterranean Season at VAULT Festival 2017.
After sell-out success at VAULT Festival 2016, award-winning PLAY Theatre Company are back with a brand new season of bold and brilliant work. Over the course of the Festival we’ll be presenting eight box-fresh new PLAYs, created by the brightest and best emerging theatrical talent.
The Subterranean Season sees the return of PLAY’s distinctive brand of extreme theatre sport. We’ll be bringing together a company of – wait for it – THIRTY SIX of the hottest actors, writers and directors to share a PLAYroom. They’ll have just two weeks to collaborate, devise and create new work exclusively for VAULT Festival ‘17.
One hour, four short PLAYs packed full of variety. This is theatre at it’s freshest and most vital, brimming with bite, wit and charm.
‘An extraordinary success – the best tenner you can spend this week’ – There Ought To Be Clowns
'The Subterranean Season proves that a cast of young talent can its own with some of the most established and exciting acts out there' - Theatre Fullstop

A huge big "Thank You!" to everyone who joined us to kick-start the festive season at our Christmas Party!
We took over the Arcola Theatre for a big old knees up, with food from Hill & Szrok’s wonderful Jamie Allan, booze from the Real Al Company, a killer raffle and plenty of dancing.
Sundays should always be this way!
