Roundabout Festival 2015

“A beautifully designed masterpiece in engineering… a significant breakthrough in theatre technology.” The Stage

Roundabout is a portable in-the-round theatre. It combines beautiful design with innovative engineering solutions and pioneering technology to deliver a top class theatre experience in pop-up form. For the second year running this festival will take place inside the Winter Gardens.

Roundabout is the world’s first plug-and-play theatre. With lighting and sound fully integrated in the architecture of the space, production values are perfectly replicated whether the auditorium is in the West End or the West Highlands. It requires no special skills to assemble, and pops-up in a day.

Roundabout was built using sustainable materials and thanks to the use of LED technology its power consumption is a fraction of a traditional theatre.

Roundabout launched in August 2014. For the next decade it will tour the UK, bringing top class new plays and a thrilling 3D theatre experience to audiences everywhere.

“A national tour should brighten many hundreds of lives, young and old.”

“Three new works by playwrights at the top of their game… an ingenious in-the-round plywood amphitheatre… make for a vivid and immediate theatre experience.” Exeunt

‘‘Love the Paines Plough Roundabout auditorium. Wonderfully intimate. Demands great writing and playing…nowhere for anyone to hide.’’ Lyn Gardner, Guardian Theatre Critic
