Productions

RADA provides access to various events for D/deaf, deafened and hard of hearing audiences. If you require the use of our audio-assistance systems, please inform our box office when booking your tickets.

Captioned performances

Theatre captions are similar to television subtitles and give people who are deaf, deafened or hard of hearing access to live performance. The actors’ words appear on a unit placed next to the stage or in the set, at the same time as they are spoken or sung. Unlike opera surtitles for hearing audiences, captions include additional information such as speaker names, sound effects and offstage noises. Any upcoming dates can be found on our What’s on pages.

BSL interpreted performances

We provide BSL interpreted performances during our Festival, which takes place annually in the summer. During a BSL interpreted performance, every word that is spoken or sung is interpreted into British Sign Language (BSL) by an interpreter standing on stage, so that Deaf members of the audience can understand the play and follow the story. Any upcoming dates can be found on our What’s on pages.
