On Wednesday 14th March, ‘Lighthouse’, a play written and directed by dynamic theatre director Vici Wreford-Sinnott, will be performed in the Studio Theatre of ARC in Stockton.
‘Lighthouse’ intelligently explores the complexity of love, poignantly examining the visceral relationship between the mother and daughter pairing of Pip and Mona as they battle to fend off an incoming storm.
Wreford-Sinnott’s ‘Lighthouse’ was commissioned by Cultural Shift, a programme established at ARC Stockton with the vision of promoting the voices of disabled individuals from across the North East whilst providing them with a platform to express their true selves. By virtue of this, ‘Lighthouse’ is performed by two d/Deaf actors and accommodates for all audiences by presenting both in BSL and English, with accompanied additional interpretation.
‘Lighthouse’ is priced on a generous Pay What You Decide scheme, providing the audience with the opportunity to pay after the curtain call. The initiative established in ARC aims to encourage a wider range of audience members and hopes to provoke an increase in theatre-goers at the venue. ARC’s decision to implement the scheme is a demonstration of their passion for the theatre and respect for their loyal theatre patrons.
As mentioned on ARC’s official website: ‘Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not. All money collected will help ARC pay the artists who have performed, and we, therefore, hope you will give generously.’
Tickets are available to book in advance as usual and can be ordered online at arconline.co.uk.
