The Butcher's Yard theater is a theater located in the Butcher's Yard of Novigrad, just off Hierarch Square. Having been a diversion for the city's residents for decades, it now hosts a mummers' troupe led by Irina Renarde.

Description Edit

It is an open-air theater featuring rows of wooden benches in front of a stage, behind which are the troupe's accommodations. The northern exit leads to a street that joins with Hierarch Square, while the southern leads to the canal.

At the northern entrance, a ticket seller controls entry to the theater by way of ticketing visitors, each of whom must pay 50Oren3 to be granted entry while a rehearsal or play is in action.


  • Prior to the quest The Play's the Thing, both entrances are unlocked.
  • During the quest, both entrances are locked until Geralt takes the script to Irina.
  • While the doors are locked, it is possible to gain entry without buying a ticket by climbing the rooftops east of the southern entrance.
  • Although depicted as a thriving venue during "The Play's the Thing", by the time of Reason of State, it is described as abandoned.
