About the Show Less...

A series of new short plays written by primary school children aged eight to 11-years-old. Read More >

You’re invited on an intergalactic mission through the minds of young writers, where you’ll meet Mr Moon, Grandpa Ninja and Sauce Jagger to name a few. Discover the perils of turning into an umbrella, being thrown back through time or becoming a monarch who lives amongst a pile of cow pats. Learn how rap battles can settle scores, whether humans and monsters can live together in harmony and if it’s possible to make an everlasting ice cream…

Last year’s Primetime saw a cast of crazy characters on some surreal and heart-warming adventures, dreamed up by the brilliant brains of eight to 11-year-olds. And there’s more in store this time around…

The production of eight plays will run in the Jerwood Theatre Upstairs, alongside two free family playwriting workshops.

Primetime 2015 is suitable for everyone aged 7+
