Dark Horse invites you to be part of the studio audience watching the filming of the latest episode of BAD, the TV sitcom everyone is talking about.

After a false start (or two) it finally looks as if struggling actor Martin Midgley is going to get his dream role and a regular speaking part playing Detective Bob Newton in BAD, all he has to do first is solve the murder and he’s in. 

But with everyone else fighting to stay on the show, rival families at war over a ‘will they, won’t they’ wedding and none of the other characters willing to stay dead, it seems as if everyone is determined to get in the way of his enquiries.

From the company that brought you Sing Something Simple, You Have Been Watching is a laugh out loud, farcical bittersweet comedy, asking questions about ambition and determination, family influence and independence in an ever changing world.

With an energetic physical style and a soundtrack that includes Female of the Species (Space), Bad (Kirsty MacColl), Pack Up (Eliza Doolittle), Baby You’ve Got What It Takes (Michael Bublé) and One Way or Another (Blondie), you’re guaranteed to enjoy a great night out.

You Have Been Watching is a brand new show that features Dark Horse’s exceptional company of 8 professionally trained actors with learning disabilities.
