Deli Meets: Players' Circle by Merlin Nova 

Monday 6th May, Monday 27th May 

Book Now:

May 6th

May 27th

Players’ Circle is a dramatic play and theatrical games session for adults.

Through improvisation and deep play we work with props, sound effects, character and story. The games are a stimulus to launch us into freeform deep play where narrative and character emerge organically.

We will play a mixture of classic theatre and improvisation games such as Questions Only, One word at a time, Pass the Click, etc and games facilitator Merlin Nova has created such as Trash Talk, Selling the Wares, Board Game, To glow up or not to glow up, Life Model and many more… Players’ Circle is space for mistakes, laughter and exploration in a low-pressure fun environment.

"Players' Circle is lots of fun. You collaborate with others to explore role playing and naturally, characters emerge from the kind of 'on the spot' reactionary scenarios/games Merlin provides. Merlin does an amazing job at making these scenarios accessible, so even if you don't have any theatre experience (like me) you will get alot from it, you will leave energised and laughing. Highly highly recommend!!"
"I thought it was amazing! Great games!"
"It was a really fun and refreshing evening! there is a really comfortable and welcoming atmosphere which made everything more fun and funny. It got me thinking about devising material for my own performances and also just felt great to be allowed to play. Really can’t wait for the next one"
