A TRAVELLING theatre company is hoping to encourage more people with additional needs to enjoy the theatre with an innovative pilot scheme.

The Theatre Broad will be bringing Broadway comedy hit ‘Deathtrap’, by Ira Levin, to the Webster Memorial Theatre on April 30 and has introduced a new discount scheme.

Ticket prices for those with disabilities have been slashed to a token £1 and their carers will be given free entry to boot.

The plot revolves around Sidney Bruhl (David Reid-Kay), a renowned playwright stricken by writer’s block who encounters unknown dramatist Clifford Anderson (Mark Harvey).

A twisted dark comedy unravels from this point with murder, black humour and more than a few surprises along the way as both playwrights attempt to write a ‘killer’ play.

The show starts at 7.30 p.m. and tickets are £12 for adults, £10 for concessions and £1 for people with disabilities and their carers.

Tickets are available from the Webster Memorial Theatre box office on 01241 435800 or by visiting
