Re:play Festival 2015

Re:play is back! Join us at Number One, First Street for a celebration of some of the most ground-breaking, most talked-about new drama from the local fringe scene from the last 12 months.

This area boasts one of the most vibrant underground theatre scenes in the country. Tiny pubs and temporary venues host some of the most interesting and dynamic new writing the city has to offer. Sadly these productions often run for a few nights only…until now.

So come down to our cosy, pop-up venue, grab a drink from the bar, and experience an evening of some of the best new theatre around…
