We want to give you the most complete information we can about our shows, so you can have a great experience with us.

We are a producing theatre which means that everything is made by us, in Nottingham, during the lead up to the opening night. Our final week of rehearsals are technical rehearsals, which is when we finalise all the technical elements of the production, including lighting and sound effects.

We will tell you information about the themes and the known potential triggers that are in the production as early as possible.

Below are all the known triggers at this time. If you have any concerns please call Box Office on 0115 941 9419 or email access@nottinghamplayhouse.co.uk.

Still Life

Still Life is a filmed drama. It contains themes of abusive/bullying behaviour and bereavement.

LIT

LIT (Watch Party and On Demand) is a filmed play. It contains depictions of and references to sex and sexual violence, rape of a minor and underage pregnancy. It also contains strong language, drug use and themes of sexism, misogyny, the foster and care system and the adoption system. The show is recommended for ages 16+.

Extreme care has been taken to protect and support all those involved throughout the development of this production. Whilst LIT is not an autobiographical story, it is a true to life depiction of the lived experience of young people living in the UK today.

If you are affected by the details, characters or stories depicted within the story, links to organisations that can offer further support to victims, perpetrators and those living with the impact and traumas of abuse are included at the end of the film.
