Part of You, The Audience

SHOW AND TELL

An exhibition with a difference

  • 17 March 2016 - 20 March 2016
  • The Studio - The Great Hall

You, The Audience is a giant conversation with our audiences. Over the past eighteen months we’ve been collecting your stories, hearing your ideas, exploring together what theatre in the 21st century is for and what you want a theatre to be.

Join us in The Studio for SHOW AND TELL to:

Enjoy the newly commissioned work of visual artists Oliver East and Johnny Woodhams who have made a thrilling exhibition of your ideas and opinions

Experience an intimate, atmospheric sound installation by sound artists Eloise Whitmore and Tony Churnside, built from the voices of audience members sharing their personal dreams and memories of theatre

View and vote on our developing Audience Manifesto for Theatre

Contribute a personal story and sign up to be added to our You, The Audience audio archive
