Head to The Other Place and enjoy the Mischief Festival - a double-bill of new plays in the Studio Theatre, alongside a range of events and works-in-progress. Spend a day or a weekend in Stratford-upon-Avon and immerse yourself in new voices and new thinking.


Tom Morton-Smith

“The universe doesn’t care if we know how it works.”

On the eve of the activation of the Large Hadron Collider, two strangers – a journalist and a scientist – share their experiences of loss and hope in a funny but deeply touching one-act play.

Tom Morton-Smith’s Oppenheimer, created for the RSC in 2014, was a smash hit, transferring to the West End.


Matt Hartley and Kirsty Housley

From an original idea by Kirsty Housley
“I can only see wrong choices. Things that will make everything worse.”

In one wine-fuelled evening, two couples debate their materialistic lifestyle. As their dinner party descends into chaos, their friendship and their lives are irreparably changed. A theatrical experiment into those things we don’t want to see or say.

1.30pm Matinee, 7.30pm Evening

Ticket price - £15 for the Double Bill
