Today we publish our Annual Review for 2016/2017, and it’s been another great year at Nottingham Playhouse.
We started in April 2016 with The Government Inspector, the inaugural Ramps on The Moon production. We are proud to be part of a consortium of six organisations, in association with Graeae Theatre Company, who have committed to providing greater opportunities for D/deaf and disabled artists.
2017 saw us smash all previous Playhouse Box Office records, with our biggest selling theatre production ever, Touched. The casting of Vicky McClure, in her first professional theatrical production, made headlines but the combination of a Nottingham playwright, a cast of local actors, and a story set firmly in the heart of the city – resulted in a fantastic production which really resonated with our audiences.
We had 24,961 bookers purchase a total 130,747 tickets. We were able to increase access to our Pay What You Can performances and issue 2263 tickets. Our productions travelled the length and breadth of the UK, from Inverness (The Underground Man) to Plymouth (All The Little Lights). We even performed to MPs in the Houses of Parliament with Tony’s Last Tape.
