COMMUNICATING DOORS

REHEARSED READINGS

Rehearsed Readings are not full-scale productions like our spring, summer, and winter productions, but are instead a chance to experience a theatrical piece for a reduced price and enjoy a drink in a cabaret-style setting. Venues vary, but usually have space for 40-50 people and readings are usually only performed once, so tickets sell out quickly!

Our rehearsed readings are performed with minimal set, lighting, props, costumes, and sound effects. The actors perform with a script in their hand and have rehearsed together just a few times. Rehearsed readings are sometimes later transferred to a larger venue for a full production, but that is not always the case. 

All tickets include a drink and some venues also offer free small snacks. Your seat might also be at a small table. All rehearsed readings are 'general admission', which means seats cannot be selected at the time of booking and are allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis. Typically rehearsed readings start slightly earlier than our full-scale productions, so check the details below to make sure you're on time! Doors usually open 30 minutes before the start time, unless otherwise stated below.

COMMUNICATING DOORS
SYNOPSIS

Communicating Doors is an intricate time-travelling comic thriller by the British master of farcical comedy, Alan Ayckbourn. A sex worker from the future (2044) by the name of Poopay stumbles into a murder plot that sends her, compliments of a unique set of hotel doors, travelling back in time. She and two women who were murdered in 2024 and 2004 race back and forth in time trying to rewrite history and prevent their own violent ends. The frantic race begins when Poopay is hired for an evening at the Regal Hotel by an old man who eschews a fling in favour of confessing his role in the demise of his wives. Now a target, Poopay flees into the vestibule and somehow triggers the time machine.
