PLAY performances: IMPORTANT UPDATE
Early this morning a fire occurred in a unit adjacent to the PLAY performance space in the former Blacks unit on Old Hall Street. Though our venue was not affected Staffordshire Fire and Rescue are inspecting the whole area and so we have reluctantly taken the decision to postpone tomorrow (Weds) 2pm and 5:30pm shows.
The remainder of the shows this week: Thurs-Sat 2:00pm and 5:30pm daily will go ahead as planned. We have contacted ticket buyers for tomorrow and they are being re-booked. If you are already booked on a Thu-Sat show you do not need to do anything and we look forward to seeing you at the show.
What is PLAY?
It is a theatre performance that mixes gaming and theatre, to create an amazing experience for children aged 3-10 and their families.
WHAT IS THE STORY?
We cant tell you everything that would spoil the surprises we have planned. But it starts with Sator falling through a hole from her world into Stoke-on-Trent. She needs the help of the audience to reunite her with her family and save her world. Theres a great sensory element to the show including things to taste (allergy-friendly) and even gentle rainfall.
