Roundabout, Paines Plough's award-winning, portable, in-the round auditorium is back. This autumn, we're thrilled to be heading to Hamworthy Park for a 4-day celebration of new plays, a musical, a drag performance and community event.
In this haven of affordable theatre and top quality performances, we invite people of all ages to enjoy and discover the magic of live entertainment. Enter through the open doors and immerse yourself in-the-round before launching into a powerful and moving showcase of theatrical goodness. Watch and feel it all, as these artists fill the tent with emotion, movement and those stories we rarely hear.
As well as presenting world-class artists at Lighthouse, we love to make sure our work is available for everyone. And sometimes that means bringing our work to you, even if it involves pitching a professional theatre in one of your favourite parks!
Join us for an unforgettable experience, whether you are a theatre fanatic or novice, there’s something for everyone…all you need is an open mind and a sense of adventure.
