Nottingham Playhouse

About

Awarded Regional Theatre of the Year 2019 by The Stage, Nottingham Playhouse is one of the UK’s leading producing theatres and the impressive Grade II listed building, front by Anish Kapoor’s Sky Mirror, is one of the region’s most popular landmarks.

Since 1948, they have been creating bold and imaginative productions: timeless classics, fun family shows and adventurous new commissions, often touring work nationally and internationally. And don’t forget the Playhouse’s legendary family pantomime!

Notable recent productions include: the widely acclaimed The Madness of George III, which starred Mark Gatiss and Adrian Scarborough, and was broadcast in cinemas around the globe as part of National Theatre Live; Rebecca Lenkiewicz’s updated version of the Ibsen classic An Enemy of the People, starring Alex Kingston; and The Kite Runner, which has had major success in the West End and three national tours.

Added to this is a programme of top visiting shows including big name comedians, stunning dance and high-energy music gigs.

Nottingham Playhouse believes theatre should be accessible to all, and runs wide-reaching participation schemes, youth theatres and its Amplify programme – which seeks to inspire and support theatre-makers from the East Midlands.

With something on offer for everyone, why not see what’s on during your next visit to Nottingham. Tickets for shows at Nottingham Playhouse are available from our Tourist Information Centre on Smithy Row, just off the Market Square, by either popping in or by calling 08444 77 56 78.
