Playhouse - Cross Words, The Genius, Animals
Playhouse gives primary school teachers and youth theatre directors the opportunity to direct specially commissioned plays by leading playwrights, with professional support from the Birmingham Repertory Theatre.
Playhouse is a national project that also runs at Theatre Royal Plymouth, Polka Theatre in London and York Theatre Royal.
The plays are specifically written for primary school aged casts and the teachers/directors have all taken part in a weekend retreat delivered by the four partnership theatres that developed their directing skills and allowed them to work with the play's writers.
