Out in the Playground


Out in the Playground was a research and development project supported by The Kitchen, Appetite's artist development programme. The project explored the feasibility of a school playground as a venue for an immersive theatre event in order to improve access to high quality theatre for families in areas with low arts engagement levels.

In March 2015 the project received Grants for the Arts funding from Arts Council England to create a bespoke installation structure and immersive theatre performance based on the ideas generated with families during Out in the Playground and deliver residencies in two primary schools in Stoke-on-Trent.
