More Information on Zoetrope
Seven very different young people arrive to take part in group counselling. As a system in crisis struggles to diagnose, treat or support them, they begin to rely on each other to make it through.
Specially commissioned for the Playhouse, Zoetrope is a timely exploration of the mental health of our young people and the resources afforded to them. Funny, satirical and deeply moving, Rebecca Manley’s brilliant new play features a dynamic cast of over twenty young people from the Playhouse Youth Theatre and First Floor.

The theatre experience is enhanced for people living with dementia and their supporters, with adaptations to front of house service, the show and pre-show information packs.

Parent & Baby Performance
A Parent and Baby performance enables parents to attend the theatre with their baby (under 12 months). We make small adaptations to the lighting and sound effects, including keeping the auditorium lights slightly raised. The seating is unallocated and there is a relaxed attitude to noise.
