About Mufti Games


We engage with play by:

  • Connecting friends, families and strangers, of all ages, through our unique theatrical games.

  • Building relationships and expanding imaginations in our regular family play sessions.

  • Reaching your audiences in new ways using commissioned props, workshops, consultation and research projects.

We believe in the power of play and are proud to be part of the worldwide play community.

We try to make all our work as accessible as possible, we use play to ask difficult questions and take us to unexpected places.

In  a world obsessed with evidence and outcomes and targets, finding more opportunities to play is vital, for all of us. Creative play allows us to open our minds, to take a step back and invest in our experiences, our relationships and our lives more fully. Play can allow people to engage in a thoughtful, deeper way by immersing one in action. It allows people to see each other and to look at situations, locations and the world differently.


Mufti Games have been played at festivals, street events and venues including National Theatre, Eden Project, Somerset House, Festival Number 6, Bristol Old Vic and Just So Festival. We have created games for Royal Shakespeare Company, Bristol 2015 Green Capital, University of Bristol and The Barbican Centre.

We’re based at Mivart Studio’s and are residents at Pervasive Media Studios in Bristol.
