A chance to explore some of the greatest plays ever written, in a friendly and sociable group.

We’ll be looking at key scenes, delving into the lives of the characters and how the writer creates the setting and the plot.

We believe that theatre should be for everyone and always ensure our building and sessions are accessible to all participants, removing any barriers to participation. Find out more 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 participation@nottinghamplayhouse.co.uk.
