How To Feasibly Watch Three Plays a Week

Our AD James Grieve has recently written an article for The Stage on how it really is possible to watch 3 plays a week for under £12.50. You can read it here:

https://www.thestage.co.uk/advice/2018/cheap-theatre-tickets-see-three-plays-week-12-50-less/

In light of this, we’ve decided to create an ongoing resource centre for all those that want to watch as much theatre as possible without breaking the bank! We also do not want this to be a London-centric space,  so are particularly interested in deals and schemes from regional theatres. Please DM us on Twitter with any further suggestions, or email jo@painesplough.com – we’ll just keep adding!
