Playtime


dramaRecently named amongst the top films of all time by the BFI. Jacques Tati‘s glorious Parisian comedy about confusion in an age of high technology was the artistic high point for his world-famous lovably old fashioned clown Monsieur Hulot.

For the first time, it will now be adapted into a vibrant stage production by the Royal & Derngate’s resident company Dancing Brick an award-winning international group of physical theatre makers celebrated for their comic and visual ingenuity.

As we return to our town centres after the pandemic, this big hearted hilarious  and utterly unforgettable story shows a teeming metropolis trying – and often failing! – to get to grips with a baffling modern world.

Verity Bargate Award-winning playwright Thomas Eccleshare (Instructions for Correct Assembly, Royal Court) and director Valentina Ceschi (Heather, Bush Theatre) will bring this dazzling film to life on the Royal stage, with original songs by Grammy Award-winning composers Martha Wainwright and Chilly Gonzales, along with Pierre Grillet.

In an age defined by division, Playtime will be a joyful reminder of our shared humanity in all its beauty, chaos and of course, comedy!
