The production will run in partnership with The Lowry at Salford Quays and central Manchester for six weeks from 19 January 2021. Casting for the new runs is to be confirmed.

Tickets are available online here with audiences of up to 17 for each performance.

Running for 50 minutes, the unique show sees ticket holders sent a link to download an app which will provide the exact location of the performance. They'll be able to listen to the show via headphones after downloading the audio from the app which synchronizes the spectators and actors.

The piece explores the themes of mental health and anxiety through the eyes of Sarah as she is approached by someone she believes to be a stranger. She discovers that he can hear her thoughts but how? Who is this man? Dive into her mind in this unique sensory and immersive new show and experience theatre like never before.

Director Samuel Sené said: "Since writing this play and developing the new technology during lockdown in Paris back in April, I could never have imagined that C-o-n-t-a-c-t would go on to be something we could share on such an international level. I am so proud that we have been able to bring people together to experience quality live theatre safely during these times"

Producers Katy Lipson and Mathilde Moulin added: "We are absolutely thrilled that C-o-n-t-a-c-t will embark on a run in Salford and Manchester after its launch in London this Autumn.

"Greater Manchester is a fantastic city-region of culture which we have strong roots in so we could not be more proud to be bringing this unique sensory experience to new audiences in partnership with The Lowry."
