Theatre Absolute will be using the Difference Engine during the live performance. The Difference Engine is Talking Birds‘ discreet tool for making performances and events accessible to D/deaf, hard-of-hearing, blind or partially-sighted audience members by delivering captioning or audio description direct to their own mobile devices.
The live performance will be BSL interpreted. We will also be offering large print read-a-along guides.
There are 2 disabled parking bays outside the theatre. The theatre is on the ground floor.
The pre-recorded online stream will be captioned and a read-a-long guide can be provided in advance.

Whilst we can no longer legally require the wearing of face masks within the Shop Front Theatre, we would urge our audiences, and visitors to continue to wear masks unless you are exempt. Similarly, all our creative team are being asked to continue wearing masks wherever possible. We feel there is still a significant risk, so we are doing everything we can to keep our team and audience safe at all times.
