About Us

The Play House uses participatory theatre and drama to support the language and learning of children and young people. We aim to stimulate children’s imagination and creativity, with meaningful participation at the heart of everything we do.

Our popular touring programme of participatory theatre in education for 3 – 11 year olds specifically addresses requirements across the national curriculum, in particular the English statutory programme of study, stimulating spoken language and more effective writing.


What we do

We provide exciting, participatory theatre for children at EYFS, KS1 and KS2 to ignite children’s imaginations. Our pedagogy and practice has been developed over 30 years working in proud partnership with Birmingham and Midlands schools.

Our work addresses a range of themes and requirements from across the curriculum, including:
– English – speaking and listening, more effective writing, spoken language
– Literacy and numeracy
– British values
– Mental Health and Wellbeing
– History
– Science – earth and space, forces
– SMSC – safeguarding
– Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED)
