How to go to the theatre with Black Coffee

Audiences coming to see Black Coffee Theatre’s show Found on Tuesday 17 & Wednesday 18 September will be able to take advantage of a 2-4-1 offer to mark the beginning of ARC’s Autumn season by quoting “Cappaccino” when booking online, over the phone or in person.


As well as their generous offer, BCT are keen to coax in new audience members with a playful breakdown of how to visit the theatre and enjoy the show. Their nine steps include:

Step 2: Pop to the bar! WOO! Get a bevvy, maybe a bag of sweets? An Ice Cream? Sot it! Go mental!

Step 6: When the lights go down, sit and enjoy the show. Don’t feel like you can’t move or re-adjust your legs. If you need to sneeze then sneeze!

Step 7: When the performance ends, it’s generally expected that you will applaud the actors (they like to feel appreciated). Feel free to whistle, whoop or even give them a standing ovation if you really enjoyed it!


Black Coffee’s Artistic Director Maria Crocker, who co-directs the show with its writer Luke Adamson, explains the motivation behind the step by step guide:


For some people a trip to the theatre can be quite daunting, but really it’s very similar to going to the cinema or to a comedy gig. Found is only 1hr 20mins and will probably make you laugh, maybe cry and hopefully feel something. If you’re intrigued to find out more then come along and enjoy the show, it’s easy!


Presented by Black Coffee Theatre, Alnwick Playhouse, ARC and Northern Stage, written by Luke Adamson and directed by Luke Adamson and Maria Crocker, Found is a thought provoking, funny new play that will really make audiences think.
When Mark finds an unconscious man lying in the sands of a beach, he does what any other person would do; he stops to help. He has no idea that in doing so he is starting a chain of events that will seemingly ruin his life.


Hot on the heels of their successful tour of Chekhov’s The Seagull that played to packed houses up and down the country, Found examines how we involve ourselves in the lives of other people, how our actions can affect them and poses the question ‘what happens if we stop thinking about ourselves for a second and actually listen to others?’


To take advantage of Black Coffee Theatre’s 2-4-1 offer, simply quote “Cappaccino” when booking online, over the phone, or in person for Found.
