Theatre as you've never seen it before
Time Passes. Listen. is a theatrical treat with a difference.

Performed not on stage but in a warren of back rooms behind the disused Woolworth's store on Sheffield Moor, it offers an immersive experience for the audience.

The show is the latest offering from the city's Bare Project theatre group.

Inspired by the work of Dylan Thomas, it brings together stories and memories contributed by more than 1,000 people of all ages from the Sheffield area.

The stories were collected from visitors to the old Woolworth's building. They were invited to tell a story and get a free cup of tea in exchange.

This produced a wealth of stories from ghostly tales to memories of the city's industrial past.

You can look forward to sneaking down haunted hallways, dodging people juggling pottery, experiencing rooms full of balloons - and even more.

This is real immersive theatre where you get to be part of the whole experience rather than just sitting in a seat throughout the performance. Make sure you wear warm clothing and be ready to explore.

Awarded funding by Arts Council England, the show promises to be a night of fun and mystery - and there are also matinee performances. Tickets are available from the Bare Project's website or by calling 07846 942048 - but some dates are already sold out so you need to be quick.
