Booked for a Tri-Cycle performance of Home Truths and not sure what to expect? We’ve put together some frequently asked questions to help you plan ahead:

What is a Tri-Cycle performance?

Let’s start with the basics! Home Truths is Cardboard Citizens’ award nominated, four star hit season that features the world premieres of nine short plays. The production is divided into three Cycles (three plays per Cycle) and for most of the run audiences will watch one Cycle per evening.

On Tri-Cycle days we will be performing all three Cycles, so you get to see the whole season in one visit! You can book here for a Tri-Cycle day on 29 April or 13 May.

When should I arrive?

Cycle One starts at 12pm. The theatre will be open from 11.30am – please arrive at least 15 minutes beforehand to pick up your ticket(s). Our top tip? The seating for the season includes a couple of very comfortable sofas, so get their early and grab a couch seat!

Will I get a break?

Yes! In each Cycle there is a short interval after the first two plays.

Cycle One will start at 12pm and will be followed by an extended 50 minute interval for lunch.

Cycle Two will begin at 3.30pm and will be followed by a 90 minute interval so you will have time for dinner.

Cycle Three will begin at 7.30pm and the day will conclude around 9.30pm.

We advise you stay at or near the theatre for the intervals.

What should I eat and drink?

The Bunker bar will be open throughout the day serving soft drinks and alcohol (including a couple of very special cocktails…).

In your extended interval after Cycle Two there are lots of places nearby you can go for dinner. Next door is the Flat Iron Square food market, and there are plenty of places nearby for a quick bite to eat including Pret A Manger, Leon and The Breakfast Club.

You are also welcome to bring your own food and have a picnic at the theatre! Please just make sure not to eat during the performances and please do not bring in alcoholic drinks (you can buy them at the bar).

Please make sure you are back at the theatre by 7.20pm for a prompt 7.30pm start.

I don’t have a ticket, can I still book?

Yes! There are still tickets available to book for 13 May here. Tickets are £35 (£28 conc).
