One day – one play.

Play in a day is for children aged 8 to 13 years old, and no drama experience is necessary. The workshop leaders will create a relaxed and supportive environment to have fun and build confidence.

This ever popular half term experience is for young people who love to make theatre. Led by an expert practioner from the Playhouse, the children spend the day learning and creating a potted version of Private Peaceful by Micahel Morpurgo before showing their creation with parents and carers in a short informal sharing at the end of the day.

The workshop is designed to be accessible for everyone. Find out about Access at Nottingham Playhouse here and please tell us if there is anything further we can do to ensure our sessions are accessible for you. You can get in touch at

Do I need to bring anything?

No need to bring anything, everything will be provided.
