ARC’s policy is to set ticket prices based on demand, like budget airlines, which means we set a price when the event goes on sale and then sometimes put the price up or down depending on how the show is selling. Usually, the price will increase as we get closer to the event, so it is advantageous to book in advance, although sometimes we will put special offers on and reduce the price. Our website will always show the current ticket price.
ARC’s theatre and dance performances are priced on a Pay What You Decide basis, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen a show!
We want to encourage more people to come and see shows at ARC, more often. 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.
Tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.
All money collected will help ARC pay the artists who have performed, and we therefore hope you will give generously.
Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the show starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay, either by cash on the door or by card at the Box Office.

BBFC Ratings Info (May Contain Spoilers)
There is infrequent very strong language (‘c**t’) and more frequent uses of strong language (‘f**k’, ‘motherf**ker’, ‘behenchod’), as well as milder terms such as ‘bitch’, ‘piss’, ‘shit’, ‘dick’, ‘son of a bitch’ and ‘hell’.
A man masturbates inside his pants as he engages in phone sex, and another man does the same in a different context as his wife watches him secretly and becomes aroused, rubbing herself against a shelf. There are also moderate verbal sex references.
There is discriminatory behaviour and language centred on transsexuality and male homosexuality, including the use of terms such as ‘faggot’ and ‘tranny’, and crass comments about whether a transsexual woman still has male genitalia. The transsexual character, whose gender reorientation is not complete, objects when a man implores her to have gay sex with him because she regards herself as a woman. There is also culturally sexist behaviour demonstrating attitudes towards women in a patriarchal society. The various forms of discrimination are not endorsed by the work as a whole.
A character takes their own life by drinking an unidentified substance, and a second suicide is implied as another character walks out into the sea.
There is moderate threat and violence.
There are moderate bloody images, including in a scene where a goat is killed in undetailed fashion during the course of food preparation. There is emotional upset in a funeral scene.
