The context of the performance event
This chapter looks not just at the performance itself, but at the whole event of theatregoing for young people. There is a discussion of the architecture and semiotic of the buildings and performance spaces themselves, and how they are experienced by young audiences, and a discussion of the various experiences which comprise the entire event, the social factors relating to what is usually an event they attend in large groups (e.g. school parties) or small (e.g. family or friendship groups), the protocols and rituals, their expectations, and their own demeanour and behaviour.
