The Little Theatre, a non-profit organisation owned and operated by Leicester Drama Society Ltd., presents a repertoire of plays of all genres. Throughout the year, the theatre will be presenting several performances for people with sight loss.

When booking, people with sight loss can request a CD that features director’s notes, any appropriate articles from the programme, and descriptions of the set, cast, characters and costumes. The CD will be sent out a week before the performance. 

At 1pm, people with sight loss can have a touch tour of the set, and meet some of the cast so that their voices are introduced. During the performance, there is a live audio description relayed via headsets.

Rough Justice

James Highwood, host of the popular TV programme British Justice, is himself on trial at the Old Bailey for murder. Refusing his solicitor’s plea to obtain legal representation, he is conducting his own defence – admitting responsibility but pleading manslaughter. His claim that the jury alone is responsible for the verdict brings him into conflict with the judge, and the desire to have his intentions understood causes problems with the prosecuting counsel. But is it manslaughter, or is it in fact murder? Terence Frisby’s sharply written, absorbing courtroom drama, will grip you tight and not let go until you are faced with the final question – Guilty or Not Guilty?

This amateur production of “Rough Justice” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.

Tickets: £14.50 (Concessions: £13.00)
