When the play is going to start, the lights will dim slowly and it will be darker than when you arrived

When everyone is ready, the actors will come out onto the stage and the play will start. The actors won’t be able to talk directly to you during the play. They will be in character. This character may talk to you or the audience. You may respond to this.

If you would like to take some time out during the play you may leave at any time and find a seat in the foyer until you are ready to go back in.

At the end of the show everyone will clap their hands to show the actors that they enjoyed the play.

When the clapping has ended, the lights will get brighter. This means the show is over.

You can now leave the theatre. Exit through the foyer.
