About Play in a Week

Come and create a brand new performance this summer, inspired by Shaun Tan's wildly imaginative and surreal book, 'Tales from the Inner City'. Develop new skills in this innovative course led by professional theatre maker and Macrobert Drama Artist, Daniel Livingston. The week will culminate in a performance for family and friends, celebrating the accomplishments and creativity of everyone involved.

Ages 11-18

Running from 10.30am to 4.30pm each day 22nd to 27th July.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Play in a Week are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
