Conversations Over Toys
Friday 9th October 2002 6.00pm

Written and Directed by   Tim McArthur

Gary Mackay ( Let the Right One in)

Conversations Over Toys takes place in Jane’s Toy Shop in Archway, London around the corner from The Whittington Hospital. The Toy shop is not your normal commercial toy shop. It’s “A magical cave of toy wonders” for the children and the adults. Full of toys of all genres, new, old, collectables.

On the shelfs for example are bags of Lego, Sylvian Families, Thomas The Tank Engine, Small dolls in sweet jars, action figures and books. Alex a very warm loving 35-year-old woman manages the shop five days a week. She is loyal to her regulars and very friendly to new visitors. As the story proceeds we meet Bev who is visiting London to see her grandchildren, Binny who is a 20 year old autistic lad who is obsessed with Smurf’s. Then we meet Mister Mike the guy in his pyjamas and Sam’s world is about to be thrown a curveball.

How To Buy your Ticket
Each ticket corresponds to the number of seats you need. For example if there are two of you, buy ONE ticket of 'Room For Two People' - this will give you two seats in a cluster socially distant from other seats. 'Room for Three' gives you three seats on one ticket and so on. If there are up to six people in your party, buy any combination of each ticket to add up to the number of seats you need.

Each individual ticket as named gives you:
Room For One = one seat
Room For Two People = two seats
Room For Three People = three seats
Room For Four People = four seats

Social Distance Seating at The Playground Theatre
To comply with Covid-19 Social Distancing guidelines, tickets for this event are only available in seating clusters of seats. Patrons who are coming in a party of up to six people will need to purchase two or more seating clusters appropriate to their needs. Your party may not necessarily be in clusters of seats next to each other, but each cluster is socially distant from other seats.
The venue has a limited number of solo seats and to maintain social distancing within the theatre anyone requiring solo seating when all of these are sold will need to purchase a 'Room For Two' or higher ticket.

Parties or groups larger than six people may be refused admission to comply with the latest Covid-19 Social Distancing Guidelines. We apologise for any inconvenience this might cause but the venue has to ensure the safety and well-being of all patrons visiting the theatre and the seating restrictions enable us to comply with these requirements and still stage live theatre for you to enjoy.

To ensure the health and safety of all audience members, performers and theatre staff and reduce the risk of Covid-19 cross-contamination we regret that any latecomers will not be permitted into the Theatre.

Please ensure you bring and wear a mask in the theatre or purchase one from the box office. Please be advised that if anyone attending shows signs of being unwell or receives a temperature test that indicates they may be affected by Covid19 , the venue reserves the right to refuse admission in the interests of health and safety of all patrons in the theatre.

Temperature checks are being taken at point of entry and you are also required to either provide your contact details for track and trace or scan the QR code linked to the NHS tracking app.  

Please note all seating purchases are final and refunds in part or in whole cannot be made if you or a member of your party is unable to attend or is refused entry due to late arrival or as a result of a high temperature check or showing symptoms associated with Covid-19.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

We do not accept Amex.
