We’re upgrading our systems!

We’re pleased to let you know that we’ll have a brand new website and booking system ready for you shortly. It’s something our team have been working on for a long time, and not even COVID-19 could stop us in bringing you this new and improved online experience.

Whilst we are making the necessary changes behind the scenes, we are unable to take any bookings and you won’t be able to login into your account at this time. We expect the new site to be up and running on/around Friday 25 September, so please check back then.

Many thanks for your patience and support at this time.

Nottingham Playhouse Associate Artist, James Graham (Ink, This House, ITV’s Quiz), returns to his home city with a love story for today.

Two people. One perfect date. And then, the world collapses…

Ashley and Morgan both think they’ve found the one after years of break-ups, ghosting, and swiping left. Now butterflies, a million things in common, and embarrassing fantasies about the future.

Then, a national lockdown is announced and they’re faced with an impossible and urgent decision – quarantine apart? Or maybe, just maybe, take the crazy decision to isolate together?

Follow two alternative versions of the couple’s future as they navigate a strange new reality together, and apart. A punchy, playful and romantic new play about the sacrifices we make not to be alone.

Bubble is part of the Nottingham Playhouse Unlocked festival of live and livestreamed shows. There is a strictly limited number of tickets to watch this world premiere production in person at Nottingham Playhouse, or purchase an e-ticket to watch the livestream at home.
