With Here We Sit opening this week, a comedy that illuminates the joys and tribulations of the modern theatre-going experience, we are going to focus more on the tribulations. We want you to tell us about your worst night at a theatrical production. We don’t mean the sort of evening where the script mildly disappointed, or someone’s cellphone rang, or the actors dropped cues like litter. We mean what is your experience of travesty, fiasco, utter misery? This is your chance to vent and put your fellow audience members on the hot seat!

Share your experience with us in the comments on the promotion post on our Facebook page and you could win a pair of FREE tickets to Here We Sit! On Wednesday, we will pick a random winner from the comments and share their experience on our Facebook page.
