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 brief moderate violence.
There is infrequent strong language (‘f**k’), as well as other terms such as ‘whore’ and ‘shit’.
Discrimination includes the backdrop of misogyny against which events unfold.
Sexual violence and sexual threat
It is revealed from the outset that the woman and girls of the community are being drugged and systematically raped by the men, including their own relatives. No sexual violence appears on screen, but women are seen to be bloody and distressed in the aftermath of attacks. To each other, they recount their experiences and the consequent psychological fallout. In one scene, girls scream when a man tries to get into their bedroom. A woman resolves to return home, at great risk, to her abusive husband in order not to make him suspicious.
There are undetailed references to suicide.
There are moderate bloody images and injury detail in the aftermath of implied sexual violence: one woman holds her own bloody teeth in her hand; another is seen to have bruised and bloody inner thighs; others have bloody shifts and bedclothes.

Information about screenings with descriptive subtitles
Descriptive subtitles, sometimes referred to as subtitles for D/deaf and hard-of-hearing people or captions, transcribe dialogue and relevant aspects of the soundtrack, including music and sound effects, attempting to give D/deaf and hard-of-hearing viewers an equal experience to those who are able to watch films without descriptive subtitles. Descriptive subtitles would include speech identifiers and descriptive elements such as [door slamming] and [kettle whistling].
