Competition: Win tickets to see Mike Bartlett’s Contractions presented by Deafinitely Theatre and New Diorama Theatre

by -

“It’s very important that you stay healthy.
That the environment you work in is safe.
That you feel comfortable, and secure.
That you feel balanced, safe, and in control.”

Written by Mike Bartlett (Doctor Foster, King Charles III) and directed by Deafinitely’s Artisitic Director Paula Garfield

Are your employers concerned about your welfare? Do they have a duty of care?

Emma thinks so, but when she begins a relationship with colleague Darren, her manager suggests she might be in breach of contract. A series of bizarre meetings follow, during which the consequences of Emma’s actions take on a disturbing quality…

A dark comedy about faceless corporations, nameless management and the boundaries between work and play.

Staged in co-production with New Diorama Theatre on a disused trading floor, Contractions is Deafinitely Theatre’s first site-specific show.

Deafinitely Theatre is the UK’s only professional deaf-led theatre company, creating bilingual productions of classic and contemporary plays for deaf and hearing audiences that combine the visual storytelling of British Sign Language with the immediacy of spoken English.

Contractions is at the New Diorama Theatre, London from November 1-29. Click here for tickets and more information.
