The Wardrobe 2022

The Orange Box Studio Theatre, Halifax

May 2022

A gripping journey through British history that shows how our country was shaped and how connected we are with our past.

Across seven centuries, small groups of children seek sanctuary in the same solid old wardrobe. It's the safest place they know – but is it safe enough?

Sam Holcroft's play was commissioned as part of the 2014 National Theatre Connections Festival.
