More Information on Going Viral

An ARC Stockton Production

Going Viral
Written and performed by Daniel Bye

An aeroplane flies from Uganda to England. Everyone on board is weeping.

Everyone except you.

On the ground, the weeping spreads. Is it a strange new disease? An outbreak of hysteria? Or has the world become genuinely sad?

In this uncanny, high-definition world we are all more connected, more vulnerable, and more human – but not equally so.

The award-winning maker of The Price of Everything and How to Occupy an Oil Rig presents an urgent, fantastical story from the front line of an epidemic. Intimate and epic, hilarious and tragic, Going Viral is a thrilling new development in Daniel Bye‘s unique blend of storytelling, playful comedy and performance lecture.

Catch it while you can.

Developed with support from Arts Council England, Camden People’s Theatre, Northern Stage, The Yard Theatre, Triggered @ Warwick Arts Centre, QTP India and the Wellcome Trust.

Captioned Performance

Open captioning allows theatre goers with varying degrees of hearing to view the full text as it is spoken or sung, including sound effects and off stage noises. These appear on a scrolling screen, positioned on or at the side of the stage.

British Sign Language Interpreted

A Signed performance is the usual full production with the addition of a British Sign Language Interpreter who stands on the stage interpreting the show for Deaf attendees.

Audio Described

Audio Described performances are designed to improve the experience of visually impaired and blind attendees. As well as listening to the dialogue on stage the customer can wear a headset and listen to a live description of the action on stage.

Relaxed Performance

A relaxed performance is a specially selected show from our programme, with slight adaptations to make it suitable for an audience of young people or adults with learning disabilities. This may include extra lighting, additional wheelchair spaces and the freedom to move to alternative seating if required.

Dementia-Friendly Performance

A relaxed performance with adaptations to technical aspects of the show, flexible seating options and a relaxed attitude to audience responses and movement in the auditorium. In our front of house space we will have a quiet room, clearer visual markers and signage, and additional staff and volunteers trained to sensitively and respectfully welcome people living with dementia and their supporters to this show.

Sing along with the cast in this exclusive performance. Lyrics will be on screen, so you can join in as loud as you like. Open to all, fancy dress is optional but highly recommended.
