We have moved to the Barnfield Theatre!

Playback will now run on Wednesdays, 6.15 to 7.45pm at the Barbfield Theatre, Barnfield Road, Exeter EX1 1SN.

We are really looking forward to working in a larger, more accessible space!


We will be running a holiday project to create a brand new piece of theatre, Shandytown.

The project will run from the 19th to the 25th August and will be open to all local young people aged 11 - 18.
