Liz Brewer’s DIARY: Early morning BBC Radio interviews today re Eating during theatre performances….!

BBC Breakfast, Radio Surrey 7.20am Liz Brewer discusses with presenters James Cannon & Suzanne Bamborough  7.20am re: Eating during theatre performance

 The Harold Pinter Theatre sent out the request to those who had bought tickets to Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

“Out of consideration for the actors and fellow audience members, we ask that no food be consumed during the performance.”

“You may purchase food at the theatre bars to enjoy before the show, or during the interval.

“Drinks purchased at the bar areas may only be taken inside the auditorium in plastic containers provided by the venue staff.”

It is thought to be the first West End show to make such a request.


It follows calls from one of the show’s stars, Imelda Staunton, for food consumption to be banned in theatres.
