Deliverance Frequently Asked Questions
Are you coming to my house?
Yes - but only to drop off a delivery - you’re performing this piece. All deliveries will adhere to social distancing guidelines and deliverers will wear masks for your and their protection.
Wait, I’m performing it?
Yes, but don’t worry, we’ll tell you how. Deliverance is a performance about you, by you, for you. No one else is present. You’re gonna be brilliant in it. We mean it, five stars guaranteed.
But who made the show?
Brite Theater (with support from Vanishing Point). The team on Deliverance is made up of creator Kolbrun Bjort Sigfusdottir, associate artists Rob Jones and Alisa Kalynova and consultant Emily Carding.
Can I do it whenever I like?
No, this is a live event. You book for a certain date, we deliver to you within a three hour time slot on the date of your booking (a more specific time is given on the day). Once you’ve received your delivery the performance starts. It is about 90 minutes to two hours in duration. Just like being in the theatre, really. Except you don’t need to put your shoes on.
Can I do it wherever I like?
We made it especially so that you can do it in your home, we don’t recommend doing it anywhere else. This is Scotland, even in summer it gets cold out there!
Hang on, within a three hour time slot I get the delivery, why the open timeframe?
Because we need time to get the delivery to each audience/participant each evening, meaning we might start with you or you might be last to receive your parcel depending on our route.
Can my whole household do it at the same time?
No, one ticket - one performance. This is a show made for one. However, if more than one person in a household has booked in for the same performance we will give you separate time slots for delivery, meaning you’re doing it on the same night but not exactly the same time.
Can’t I just rock up (meaning book last minute)?
No, we need to get everything ready for you so we can deliver. Therefore sales for each performance will end at noon on the day. For postal performances sales will end midday 3 days before.
I’m sick of screens, why should I book for this?
Us too. But fear not. Deliverance is not a zoom, streamed, digital, VR or filmed performance. You will need a phone for a phone call but that is the end of your tech requirements. This is a live theatre performance, so though it may seem experimental it is actually super old school.
What about access?
Because this happens in your own home *most* access requirements should not limit your ability to take part. However, adjustments need to be made for audiences with visual impairments, severe dyslexia and/or hearing loss to best enjoy the performance. Severe immobility might also change your experience of this piece. If this applies to you or if you have any questions regarding access please get in touch with us so that we can accommodate. Special versions have been made for hearing and vision impaired audiences, which will be available on specific dates for each venue.
When you say there is limited ticket availability do you really mean limited?
Yes, this is not a marketing ploy, we honestly have very few tickets per show so please make sure to book to avoid disappointment.
Should I worry about triggers?
This show is recommended for age 14+ due to some of the content, but that is not to say there is cause for alarm. We believe in the magic of surprise but if you have something you know will trigger you and you’re worried this performance might set you off, please don’t hesitate to ask.
What exactly am I getting for my money?
A unique live experience, delivered to your door made by award winning theatre makers. And you get to keep what is in your parcel. Plus, you support a small Scottish theatre company. Sweet!
