'Playhouse dovetails exactly with our push to promote a more creative, relevant and real curriculum, with real audiences for our children’s work'.
JIM WALLACE, HEAD TEACHER AT COLLEGE ROAD PRIMARY SCHOOL, PLYMOUTH
Playhouse 2009 will bring the house down! Six brand new plays are given their world premieres in the Drum Theatre, by six Plymouth Primary Schools.
Playhouse gives teachers from schools across the UK a chance to direct a play by one of the country’s leading playwrights, with professional support from
Theatre Royal Plymouth.
The plays engage with social, ethical and moral issues that challenge and inspire young casts while the project is proven to successfully develop new teaching
methods and raise the confidence and creativity of teachers and young people alike.
Playhouse also runs in Polka Theatre in London, York Theatre Royal and Dundee Rep.
