We will underwrite the cost of several tickets for shows that can demonstrate that they have access to a relevant audience who would benefit from seeing their show. This could, for example, be to provide tickets for homeless people to a play about homelessness or charity workers to a play relevant to their activity.
When we provide tickets, we require the production company to provide feedback on the benefits achieved.
