Covid-19 Policy

Face coverings are no longer mandatory in the venue but are encouraged. We are now selling to full capacity for all performances. If you or someone you have been in close proximity with has Covid-19 symptoms please do not visit the theatre.

New Work

We often show new work, work-in-progress and previews. Please note that the majority of these scripts will be in development during the rehearsal process, and we are often unable to finalise content warnings and running time when tickets go on sale. Finalised content warnings and run time will kept updated on the website, so please check back before your visit if you need this information.

Pay What You Feel

We sometimes offer a 'Pay What You Feel' option for some shows, this means you can come and watch the show and simply pay what you feel the show was worth after but, most importantly, what you can afford.
