The Playhouse Derry project incorporates both refurbishment and new extension works. The Listed School buildings are home to The Playhouse community arts organisation, and are located on the historic walls of the City of Derry, Northern Ireland.

In 2001, the building had fallen into a bad state of disrepair and the Playhouse applied to BBC Restoration, reaching runner up in the finals. Although unsuccessful, the venture raised public awareness, and new funding, to both restore the old building and build a new extension.
