We try to make theatre that has an impact, that sparks a conversation. In making theatre, we're telling stories, stories that we think are important and we want people to have a conversation about them. With a show like In Arabia We'd All Be Kings we think there's some really important conversations to be had so we've come up with a few things to help make that conversation happen.
To have a conversation we need people to have that conversation with so we're really making an effort to make it possible for as many people as possible to see the show. With that in mind we're keeping ticket prices as low as possible so that people can afford to come along with tickets just €10 for all June performances and €10 concession tickets for all the shows in July.
But we know making our show accessible for people isn't just about cheap tickets. There are lots of barriers that sometimes make it difficult for people to come along. We really believe that theatre should be open to anybody who wants to come along. With that in mind we're offering free touch tours prior to the performances on Saturday the 4th and Wednesday the 8th of July for blind and visually impaired audience members an hour prior to the show starting. We're really keen to hear other ways that we can make this show, and our future work, as accessible as possible for our audiences so as many people as possible can experience the work so if you've any suggestions on how to do that we'd love to hear from you!
We also want to share our story of making the show with you so we're having the first of our Talkback Thursday sessions on Thursday the 2nd of July with a Meet The Makers session after the show with some of the creative team offering their insights into how the show came together. We've also got some other great post-show discussions lined up that we'll be letting you know about really soon!
Like we said we want this show to start a conversation so come along, let us know what you think, and join in that conversation. We can't wait to see you there!
