The Alternativity

Venue: Park & Dare Artform: Comedy
The Alternativity

In this cabaret-style theatre show, Flossy and Boo delve into the festive season in all its messy glory, hangovers and all...

'Twas the bit before Christmas, which gets longer each year,

And Flossy and Boo were trying to find 'festive cheer'.

Their stockings were flung on the back of a chair,

With tinsel and crackers shoved in pink and blue hair.

But what on earth is 'a Christmas'? We just don't understand!'

Exclaimed the two, drinking eggnog (supermarket own brand)

'We'll have to explore further!' they finally shout,

So come along this December, to see what 'Christmas' is all about...

Fresh from their ★★★★★ run last year, Flossy and Boo are taking 'The Alternativity' on tour this Christmas to bring you something a little bit racy, cheeky and downright silly.

A Christmas show filled with music and comedy, this one is just for the grown-ups!

AD Audio Described Performance

Audio description is a live commentary interspersed with the actors' dialogue. This is relayed via a headset linked to the infra-red audio system. There is a short 'programme notes' session, before the production, which explains the atmosphere, costumes, characters and action.

BSL British Sign Language Performance

Signed performances are ideal for those who use sign language. Trained British Signed Language (BSL) signers usually stand to one side of the stage and interpret the script used by the performers at the same time as it is being performed.

R Relaxed Screening/Performance

Open to everyone, but particularly appropriate for anyone who may find the usual theatre/cinema environment challenging, due to an Autism Spectrum Condition, a learning disability, or a fear of the dark, loud noises or confined spaces.

Relaxed Performances/Screenings provide a relaxed environment, where elements are adapted to reduce anxiety or stress. Lighting and sound levels are adjusted to soften their impact and there is a relaxed attitude to noise and leaving and re-entering the auditorium during the performance/screening.

Designated 'chill-out' areas are provided outside the auditorium with activities for people to use if being in the auditorium becomes overwhelming for them.

T Touch Tour

A Touch Tour is ideal for blind and partially-sighted audiences to familiarise themselves with the set ahead of the performance.

C Captioned Screening/Performance

Captions display dialogue on-screen (similar to subtitles) and also describe the audio or sound portion of a film/performance allowing audience members who are D/deaf or hard of hearing to follow the script and the action of the film/performance at the same time.

For live performances, the screen is positioned at the side of the stage.
