Alphabetti Theatre will be presenting ‘Listen In’, an immersive audio show that will allow your household/bubble to be mesmerised by three incredible short plays. Ranging from hip hop and fear, to love, comedy and addiction, these shows are guaranteed to leave you mesmerised and yearning for more. Due to the current changes in government guidelines (and to keep you safe!) these shows have been produced for both live and online audiences, which means they are ready to bring you this wonderful experience to the comforts of your own home or from their venue.

The Last Laugh, Written & Performed by Lauren Pattison 

“I’ll come out in a bit. Not yet though. Bit nervous. I had a nightmare of a gig last time, I’m spooked now. Like a dog who’s heard the hoover for the first time.” Katie Baker is a stand-up comedian facing her fear: returning to her most dreaded venue after a horrific gig that she’ll never forget.  


Comedy is no laughing matter for Lauren Pattison, a comedian set for fame and a much sought-after act, Lauren burst out into the comedy scene in the North East and has now worked along stars such as Katherine Ryan and Jason Manford.  The Last Laugh combines themes of comedy and fear to bring you an unforgettable experience like no other.

The Interval, Written by Richard Boggie

& performed by Carl Kennedy 

“I still look forward to the interval. I try to get a seat near the door, so I can slip out quickly to the bar.” The Interval is a tale about escapism, addiction, and love.  


Richard Boggie is an extremely talented and emerging writer from Newcastle.  Although his work may seem playful and comedic on the surface, he often offers remarkable insight into his own personal experiences with sight loss and disability. Richard Boggie is a writer like no other, combining insightful themes with hilarity, The Interval will leave you lost for words.



An Empty Room, Written & Performed by Kay Greyson  

"I started rapping when I was six, the forbidden world of hip hop with all its thrills and swearing called out to me. I was hooked, I wanted to be a rapper, and I wasn't accepting a plan B." An autobiographical story about Kay’s career, looking at one of her best but also worst ever gigs, featuring live music.


Kay Greyson is a name you must not forget. An Empty Room not only allows you to experience the well-missed live music atmosphere, but also grants you access to a unique autobiographical tale about Kay’s impressive career. Kay speaks about the best times of her life, but remains true to the worse days, giving you true insight into the worst ever gigs. Providing you with motivation, euphoria and the odd dash of rhythm, this short play is not to be missed.
