As well as doing a lot of other things, Hothouse Theatre has been producing fringe theatre in and around Nottingham for the past 25 years. Most of it, once performed, leaves little trace, beyond a wry smile or two when one of the actors or an audience member, has cause to remember a particularly witty witticism, or profound statement from a past performance.

However, during the pandemic, Hothouse, like many other theatre projects, went online. For us, this meant producing audio performances, which were recorded and then place on our Oh My Nottz website.

The main purpose of this page is to offer an easy way for you to revisit those gems.

Check out the links below.

A Christmas Carol
