Roundabout is the world’s first pop-up, plug-and-play theatre.
It flat packs into a lorry and comes to Margate 22-25 September.
Everywhere it pops up Roundabout brings a festival of brand new plays, live music, comedy and anything else you could dream up.
With Roundabout, Paines Plough have gained an ardent following of fans, winning numerous praise and awards.
“A beautifully designed masterpiece in engineering…a significant breakthrough in theatre technology.” – Theatre Building of the Year 2015 The Stage Awards
“Something strange and delightful has landed… it’s Paines Plough’s new portable Roundabout auditorium, a colourful, comfortable, spaceship-like venue that, delightfully, can be assembled in each new place it visits using only an Allen key.” – Evening Standard
“Paines Plough’s travelling Roundabout Auditorium is probably the loveliest venue at the Fringe.” – The List
‘‘A national tour should brighten many hundreds of lives, young and old.” – Whatsonstage.com
‘‘Three new works by playwrights at the top of their game… an ingenious in-the-round plywood amphitheatre… a vivid and immediate theatre experience.” – Exeunt
This year we’re proud to present three World Premieres…
