The new website was designed by Derry based design agency Zoocreative. Designer Ciaran Harley said "Developing the Playhouse website and getting the opportunity to work with the team there has proved to be an absolute pleasure for us. The finished project represents the most technologically advanced theatre website in the north. We are very proud of the results."

Funding for the website was provided by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland through its Capacity Building Programme. Gavin O'Connor, Arts Development Officer, Arts Council of Northern Ireland said: "As a principal funder of the Playhouse, the Arts Council is delighted to support the launch of this new website. The Playhouse is a significant provider of arts in the North West and contributes greatly to the social, economic and cultural life of the community. As such, it is great to see a modern and user-friendly website that we hope will enable the Playhouse to better connect with audiences."
