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.


Isolated in a countryside manor, Wyke – a reclusive, eccentric crime novelist – has invited a young hairdresser by the name of Tindle around for a drink. Fully aware that Tindle is romantically involved with Wyke’s wife, a plot is hatched between the two of them to ensure they both get exactly what they want. But as the evening creeps on and façades begin to slip, it soon becomes apparent that there are ulterior motives at work, and their playful game of cat and mouse becomes something else entirely…

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

Tickets: £14.50 (Concessions: £13.00)
