Bedroom Farce : Audio Described Performance

Audio Description is a carefully timed, live narration of the visual aspects of a performance. It is broadcast via a radio transmitter to patrons who wear a single headphone receiver enabling them to hear both the on-stage dialogue and the describer's narration.

Headsets must be reserved and limited seating is available. Braille and large print programs will be available at the performances. Plan to arrive 30 minutes early for audio described program notes and set description. Guide dogs are welcome. Tickets are $20 for each blind/low-vision patron and a guest. To reserve tickets and headsets, please contact Access Coordinator Meg O'Brien at 617 273 1558 or email

Blind school groups are also invited to attend the Student Matinee Series, several performances of which are audio-described. Schools are provided with study and curriculum guides in advance and with preview tickets for teachers (on request). Although geared for school groups, individual blind or visually impaired students accompanied by an adult are also welcome. For student matinee information or reservations, please contact Meg O'Brien at 617 273 1558, or email


About Bedroom Farce

4 couples. 3 bedrooms. One hilarious night. Trevor and Susannah, with their marriage on the rocks, invade 3 bedrooms of their family and friends over the course of an evening, spreading chaos in their wake. Director Maria Aitken (The 39 Steps, Private Lives) returns for this rollicking comedy of marital misunderstandings.

Approximate run time: 2 hours and 5 minutes, including one 10-minute intermission.

Maria Aitkin“I am looking forward enormously to returning to the Huntington, my favorite regional theatre in America – no, amend that – in the world. It's the people who work there, of course. They're not only immensely skilled at what they do, which can't be for the money, they are magnificently supportive of my choices. I know whatever vision my designers and I come up with, it will somehow be realized.”— Maria Aitken
“Having Maria Aitken at the helm of a Huntington show is always a dream. She struck gold with the Olivier and Tony Award-winning The 39 Steps and directed amazing productions of masterworks The Seagull and Private Lives. In my eyes Maria will always have an artistic home here at the Huntington. Also, Maria starred as Susannah in the National Theatre’s premiere of Bedroom Farce, so she knows what she’s talking about. Quick-witted, moving, and entertaining, this production is one to anticipate.”— Peter DuBois
