A birthday wish plunges the world into a hellish playground of 90s nostalgia. Caught in a fight for their lives, six survivors collide hoping to end their perpetual nightmare. A story of love, grief, depravity and imagination. Winner of Liverpool Echo’s Weird and Wonderful Award, who called Playtime 'a satisfying assault on the senses featuring compelling characters in the strangest of territory'. Silent Gutter create explosive theatre empowering Northern voices in stories and worlds that swerve from the familiar to the fantastical. Expect a dizzying blend of lyrical language, thrilling action and a chaotic trip into the unknown.
