Studio Walkabout Season

back to shows

Presented by Bristol Old Vic across the city

In summer 2016 we began redevelopment works to transform our King Street entrance into a welcoming, vibrant space and build a brand new Studio theatre designed by award-winning architects Haworth Tompkins. During this time, it will be business as usual in the Theatre with our brilliant programme on offer, and we're taking our Studio programme on Walkabout around Bristol!

Inspired by the city-wide partnerships created during the Theatre's first phase of refurbishment in 2011 which saw us stage productions in other venues including Coram Boy with our friends at Colston Hall, we hope you will join us as we stretch our legs across the city in collaboration with venues across Bristol.

So why not come on Walkabout with us, and continue to enjoy our brilliant studio programme around Bristol?

Booby's Bay

Presented by Henry Darke 

Above a secluded cove in Cornwall, Huck, a former fisherman, is holed up in an empty second home. The holiday season is fast approaching - the sharks are coming. As Booby's Bay gets busy for the annual surfing competition Huck wants to shake things up, even if no one's listening. He's going to make a stand.
