Pay What You Decide
The House Never Wins is operating on a ‘Pay What You Decide’ ticketing scheme, giving audiences a chance to experience more exciting and new theatre, whilst supporting both artists and theatres during this time.
These are uncertain financial times for everyone at the moment so we do not want finance to be a barrier to attendance. If you are able, (and only if you are able) there will be a pay pal link available at the end of the piece where you can transfer us any donations of what you think is suitable based on your experience.
How To Take Part
This shows are all Pay What You Decide, as well as an option to donate to the host venue – giving you the option to support both artists and theatres during this current time. You will need a laptop and a mobile phone with Whatsapp installed to take part. Some in game instructions will be sent to you before the event.
This performance requires people to take part in a gambling role play. Recommended age 16+. Families/couples can take part on one device and work as a collective group if they wish. There is no strong language, nudity or strobe lighting.
