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.
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.
- 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.
