This means you don’t have to pay for your ticket until after you have seen the show – and you choose how much you would like to pay.
We are offering tickets like this so you not only pay what you can afford, but also base it on how much you enjoyed the evening and wish to support our work.
Book your seat in advance, through Eventbrite, then decide what to pay after the show. We can accept either cash or card.
All people involved in the production of the event have been paid, so all of the money collected will go towards funding future productions, workshops and events.
A ‘scratch’ performance is an early version of a new piece of theatre. It often features just the performers, with little or no set, props, costume, lighting or sound design.
It’s an opportunity for the writer and creative team to see how the script works in front of an audience and learn more about what they may change or keep, before turning it into a full production.
Casino is approximately 45 minutes long, with no interval. There will then be a short Q&A with the writer and director, approximately 15 minutes long, after each performance.
Casino is suitable for people aged 14 and over.
The performance will start at 7pm on every night.
Doors open at 6.30pm.
