For thousands of years, a tribe of ancient monsters have dwelled beneath Sheffield’s hills, their secrets glimpsed only by lost coal miners and ambitious sandpit-diggers.
But when these strange beasts emerge in Pitsmoor, a team of expert scientists are called to investigate these dangerous foes.
Solve puzzles, crack codes and outwit monsters in this interactive outdoor adventure aimed at children aged eight to 13 and their families.
Tales From The Playground is a collaboration between Paperfinch Theatre and Migration Matters Festival.
Arts Council England funding has helped the company to run theatre and craft-based workshop at Pitsmoor Adventure Playground.
Creative producer Alfie Heffer said: “Working with the material we develop with the children at the playground, Paperfinch's multi-award-winning theatre director, Joe Bunce, and a small group of professional and community actors have been bringing the children's idea to life in a new piece of 'adventure theatre' that will happen between the slides and swings, castles and boats of the adventure playground.”
The Pit Monsters of Pitsmoor is at Pitsmoor Adventure Playground from September 27 to 2.
