Hello?
It’s Sam from Red Onion Research.
Is now a good time?

Is Now A Good Time? is a brand-new interactive piece of theatre conducted over the phone. Sign up to receive four calls from Red Onion Research over the course of an hour.

How many hats do you own?
Would you rather be too hot or too cold?
Are your first impressions of someone usually accurate?

Sam and Alex work in the same call centre. Sometimes they sit next to each other. They really love their job but there’s something missing. You might need to help them figure out what that is.

Is Now A Good Time? is a charming, funny and unexpected story, told in a truly original way.

Important information for bookers

Is Now A Good Time? will take place over the phone. It is suitable for landlines, mobiles or internet call. Please make sure when booking that you provide an accurate, up-to-date phone number.

It can be experienced by a single audience member (age 16+) or a group/family in the same household (age 12+ where adults are part of the group). You only need to book one ticket for your household, but it’s important you tell us the correct number of people taking part so that the show can be tailored to your group. You will be prompted to input a phone number and your group size at checkout. Group calls should take place over speaker phone.

You will be called on the number you’ve provided at your allotted start time. If the call is to a mobile phone, please ensure that you are in a place with reliable signal. The performance consists of four calls, with short breaks between each one. The show running time varies slightly based on group size, but won’t exceed an hour.

 

It is 50 minutes of laughter and joy, leaving me very reluctant to hang up the phone... an absolute gem

Warmly nostalgic and genuinely funny, leaving me with the kind of wide smile we could all do with in these dog days of coronavirus

A sweet and often funny piece of lockdown theatre that makes you appreciate the loveliness of awkward social interactions
