Roundabout Presents 2017

Roundabout Presents 2017
Roundabout by the critically acclaimed Paines Plough is the world’s first pop-up, plug-and-play theatre. It flat packs into a lorry and pops up all over the country in theatres, school halls, warehouses, sports centres, town centres, car parks and fields bringing outstanding plays by some of the nation’s finest writers, presented alongside some fantastic one-off performances and events!

“Something strange and delightful has landed... it's Paines Plough's new portable Roundabout auditorium, a colourful, comfortable, spaceship-like venue…’ Evening Standard

This year Roundabout pops up in a new location outside the recently built No.1 Smithfield.

Join us from Thursday 19 October to Sunday 22 October for shows to knock your socks off!
