In 1973 the Wyvern Theatre presented it's first ever production of Dick Whittington.

Agatha Christie's Audio Described Performance Introduction - Set Description

On Thursday 4 September, the Wyvern Theatre provided an audio described performance of Agatha Christie's Black Coffee. Following last year’s production of Agatha Christie’s Go Back For Murder, the Agatha Christie Theatre Company return to Swindon with a brand-new drama produced by Bill Kenwright. Black Coffee is the first play ever written by Agatha Christie and in it we are introduced to Hercule Poirot - the only fictional character ever to receive a full-page obituary in the New York Times.

So it’s my great pleasure to congratulate them on hearing that they are offering audio description and touch tours for their visually impaired patrons. After a long...
