Take Away Theatre

Take Away Theatre is a free interactive, fun performance that happens at home for disabled people and their families. It is suitable for anyone 5+ years and all abilities!

The performance engages families to co-create a drama based on our unique Takeaway Theatre menu! Two of our takeaway delivery performers ‘Ron, Stephanie, Lucy or Barry’ will lead on the fun and frolics!

It lasts for a maximum of 75 minutes and can happen indoors or outdoors.

To ensure each performance is tailored to the participant, each family will receive a call from a performer before the visit to make sure that access needs are met, to discuss where they would like it to happen and any covid precautions.

We are  recruiting disabled people and their families from August 2022 – June 2023 to stage Take Away Theatre in their homes. To book a free place or for more information please email eileen@openartsni.org or watch the short trailer below to get a sneeky peak of the team in action.

"As a family it was a heart warming and fun experience. I recommend every family should do this. We could never go to a theatre with Oisín but now, why would we want to when we can actually plot and participate in our own play at home with the expertise and guidance of the amazing performers from Take Away Theatre – Open Arts... Just amazing!"
