Playhouse is a national collaboration between Plymouth Theatre Royal, York Theatre Royal, Polka Theatre and Bristol Old Vic. The four theatres have worked together to commission professional playwrights to write short plays specifically for large casts of primary school children to perform. Over the course of the project, each theatre supports, trains and, at the end of the year, hosts 6 schools from their local area to perform their pieces as part of a Playhouse Festival.

Playhouse at Bristol Old Vic is made possible thanks to the generous support of: The Joyce Fletcher Charitable Trust, The Portishead Nautical Trust, Andrew Fletcher, Barton Willcome and Unum Ltd.
