New Show Staring 8 Actors with Learning Disabilities Coming to Barnsley

Bittersweet comedy at The Civic to Star 8 Actors with Learning Disabilities

A brand new show featuring eight exceptional professionally trained actors with learning disabilities is coming to Barnsley. You Have Been Watching is a farcical bittersweet comedy with a pop music soundtrack which shows us how quality performance breaks down the misconceptions of disabilities.

Find the body, solve the murder, get the girl, stay on the show.

“We laughed. We cried. Funny. Dramatic. Relevant. Don’t miss it – a simply brilliant show”

Dark Horse Theatre, the company that brought you Snakebite and Sing Something Simple, is coming to The Civic this October with a brand new show creating mystery, intrigue and a whole lot of laughter. You Have Been Watching is a show that keeps audiences guessing and feet tapping. With an energetic physical style and pop music soundtrack everyone is guaranteed to enjoy a great night out.

See the life of struggling actor Martin Midgley and his absurd journey as detective Bob Newton to stay on the TV sitcom BAD. Will he solve the murder? Will he get the girl? Will anyone stay dead! With everyone fighting to stay on the show, and rival families at war over a ‘will they won’t they’ wedding, this bittersweet comedy will have audiences hooked. 

‘Fabulously entertaining. A real Pleasure. Not to be missed.’
