Written to raise awareness of the work of the Theatres Trust
The basic conceit.
Over 35 theatres in the UK are at risk. Year on year cuts in funding to the Arts. A 1% employment rate amongst professional actors. An inability of theatre toaccess lucrative advertising and sponsorship revenue. A general insouciance in the great British public, who are broadly content with satellite television.
To compete with Sky, Virgin Media and the like, the Numb Nuts Satellite
Theatrical Agency has had Domestic Theatres installed in homes across the
land. The home owners must believe they still have complete control of what
they choose to watch. Each Home Theatre comes with its own outsized remote control. The contracted actors must enter the homes surreptitiously, and live unseen and unheard by the residents when they’re not performing. The whole deceit is made entirely feasible by the use of the Agency’s specially formulated spray – Numb Nuts!
