They encourage discourse.
The performance is offered at an affordable and competitive price.
Buds Theatres IN-HOUSE SERIES hosted at The Playtent, aims to make theatre accessible to all.
By charging affordable prices and hosting at our own venue, we are able to share new works, expose new talents and create new audiences interested in theatre for change. The idea of the work proposed, is to select plays that highlight societal issues, that can be performed and discussed post-show informally, allowing our audiences to engage and respond directly.
Questions will be posed post performance, to the audience, to encourage dialogue. The purpose of this discourse is firstly to raise awareness of the issues of loneliness and secondly to foster a sense of responsibility for our society. Using drama as a vehicle for change, we look to empower and invest in our audiences, to alter mindsets and create an empathetic community voice.
Tickets purchased via Buds Theatre’s website or available at the door.
