Playcraft Live Screening In the Playhouse Gallery Saturday 14th October 2017 7pm

Playcraft Live will stage the first ever play in Minecraft, stepping between real and virtual worlds, human actors, theatrical direction and digital puppeteering.

Such was the demand, this groundbreaking event in our theatre sold out in just 3 minutes! In response we have now arranged for a live screening of the action on the night in our Gallery, so people can still be part of the action!


Tickets for this gallery screening will be released at 12noon on Monday 9th October.
