A small company of actors, with connections to the military, workshop two new plays that have been devised by junior soldiers from Army Foundation College, Harrogate and Soldiers working at the Military Corrective Training Centre, Colchester. These plays have been written following residency work by two companies presenting work in the evening programme of Army at the Fringe at the Drill Hall – Further Theatre (I am Gavrilo Princip) and NMT Automatics (Tempus Fugit: Them and Us).

General venue access

  • Accessible entry: Audiences will be checked in at street level before making their way down a flight of stairs to our courtyard waiting area. From here, there is level access to the Drill Hall space. Exit is via another flight of stairs leading from the building to the pavement. Regrettably our stairlift has broken at the last minute and will not be fixed in August. Access to our Drill Hall is via a flight of stairs down to our courtyard and exit is via a further flight of stairs back up to pavement level. For customers with access requirements, the only access to the Drill Hall in 2021 will be via an assisted mobility chair. This will involve a team of soldiers assisting customers down to the basement level of our venue. For wheelchair users, this will require moving or being assisted from a wheelchair to the mobility chair in order to reach the basement level. Use of the mobility chair will involve some close contact with our front of house team, who will be masked at all times. We apologise for any inconvenience cause and are happy to discuss requirements via [email protected]
