Rock/Paper/Scissors – three new plays by Chris Bush: The centrepiece of the 50th Anniversary celebrations will see all three Sheffield spaces – The Crucible, The Studio and Lyceum Theatres – unite to stage playwright Chris Bush’s new trilogy of plays Rock (Crucible), Paper (Lyceum), Scissors (Studio). Co-Directed by Artistic Director Robert Hastie, Associate Artistic Director Anthony Lau, and Erin Schofield, three interlinked but standalone plays will tell the story of Sheffield’s oldest scissor manufacturer and the three generations who go to war over what happens to the factory site. In a theatrical first, the same cast perform in the Crucible, Lyceum and Studio simultaneously, dashing between scenes, when a character exits one stage, they arrive on another. Rock/Paper/Scissors will run from Tuesday 14 June – Saturday 2 July 2022.
