Camden People’s Theatre
Discover new videogames and performance, whilst experimenting, collaborating and sharing awesome stuff.

It’s a collection of varied, unique and interesting games and theatre pieces which merge together to provoke deep discussions. Or if you’re not feeling deep, play fun/weird games, watch some marvellous theatre and meet great new people.” 30 April 2018, 7pm
