About A Play in Five Rooms - Enlightenment House

A PLAY IN FIVE ROOMS
WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY BEN HARRISON
(Co-Artistic Director of multi-award winning Grid Iron)

The wit and ambition of the Enlightenment period animates the grand spaces of the Georgian House, lit up with sumptuous design, fine music and elegant acting.

A feast for the senses and a ravishment of heart and mind, as the noble ideals of the Eighteenth Century meet the complexities of our own time.

Written and directed by Ben Harrison, co artistic director of award winning Grid Iron, this immersive, funny, entertaining and interactive theatre experience will see audiences come across characters, giving them an insight into Georgian life but also asking questions about current times, with both Adam Smith and David Hume making an appearance!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for A Play in Five Rooms - Enlightenment House are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
