In a land far away, on a dark stormy night, in the middle of the cobble stoned floor of the Arts House Meat Market, Panther have constructed a playground.

In Playground, a new world order, small groups are invited to join Panther on an adventure.

Lives will be lived, friends lost and heroic deeds played out in a dark re-enactment of tales that we have told ourselves many times before.

in this world that contains many worlds, summoned from childhood memories of tan bark,tepees and tyre swings, we will play a game in which the playground can become any number of places with lightning speed.
