Take This Test

A new interactive digital piece.

So, you give to charity, you lent your friend quite a lot of money and you always smile at passers-by, but are you a good person, deep down?

Our moderator Clare is almost certain that you are a good person, and she’s ready to guide you through this online experience, which will (fingers-crossed) give you a certificate to prove it! She’s sure you’ll find it a fun and rewarding experience, whether you’re on your own, or with a few close friends or colleagues.

Featuring candid testimony and confessions from people across the country, you’ll need your moral compass engaged to separate what’s OK and what’s…well…not.

Take This Test (to find out if you're a good person) starts by prodding at the absurdity of personality tests, from Buzzfeed-style clickbait to psychometrics, before taking us somewhere else entirely, all to explore our sense of morality, and if anything can really be described as good, or bad.

Take This Test... is an interactive, online experience, which you access via a website. A link to the website is sent to you by the venue box office when you order your ticket, the link will only be active during the time you have booked for.

We highly recommend using a desktop or laptop computer to experience the show. We recommend that you use a modern browser (Chrome, Firefox, Safari) on an up-to-date operating system.

You can experience the piece on your own, or as a group gathered round one screen.

During the piece you'll be asked questions, some of which are multiple choice, some of which require you to input text. There are video elements to the piece too, which will play automatically. You navigate through the experience using your mouse and keyboard, just like on any other website.

The duration of the piece depends on how fast you answer the questions, but we estimate it will take you 30-45mins. You can repeat the experience at any point during the time you booked for.

Note that for ease of use, your answers will be saved locally in your browser. You will be able to delete them at any time and will be prompted to at the end of the experience.

Age guidance is 14+ (language/swearing + description of moderate violence).
The experience is captioned.
