Now, a theatre play aimed at putting audiences to sleep!

world Updated: Jun 18, 2011 22:01 IST

A new theatre show in UK where the audience would be put to sleep with a selection of performers to help them along, is set to kick off from June 24 to July 24.

Duckie’s Lullaby, the new play at the Barbican's Pit theatre invites audience members to bring along their toothbrushs and pyjamas to spend the night, and provides them with tasty snacks throughout.

Theatregoers could book either a single, double or triple bed rather than a seat.

The performance would not stop until the very last member of the audience has nodded off, and the next morning they would be woken to a breakfast of boiled eggs and toast soldiers.

Producer Simon Casson said that he came up with the show because he always falls asleep at the theatre, and the aim of the show was to make people fall asleep.

The play is divided into two halves, the first meant to be fun and the second to put audiences to sleep.

The producer also said that while the show is ‘completely and utterly unsexy’, spooning is encouraged and it is 'wonderfully romantic'.
