Triggers and Advisories

We want to give you the most complete information we can about our shows, so you can have a great experience at the Playhouse.

Nottingham Playhouse is a producing theatre which means that everything is made by us, in Nottingham, during the lead up to the opening night. Our final week of rehearsals are technical rehearsals, which is when we finalise all the technical elements of the production, including lighting and sound effects. We will tell you information about the themes and the known potential triggers that are in the production as early as possible.

Below are all the known triggers at this time. If you have any concerns please call Box Office on 0115 941 9419 or email
