Little Theatre offers described performances and touch tours

Published on 16th August 2016 in General

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.

The theatre’s described performances will be taking place during the Saturday matinee. 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, prior to the 2.30pm performance, 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.

The described performances will be taking place as follows:

Saturday 17th September - And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

Saturday 8th October - Yes Prime Minister by Anthony Jay and Jonathan Lynn

Saturday 29th October - Lovesong by Abi Morgan

Saturday 19th November - Rough Justice by Terence Frisby

Saturday 28th January 2016 - Don't Dress for Dinner by Marc Camoletti

Saturday 11th February 2016 - Sleuth by Edward Spence
