We’re very pleased to be offering closed captioning on many of our Roundabout shows this week. Here’s a list of all of them:
I GOT SUPERPOWERS FOR MY BIRTHDAY: 11.00 on Mon 15, Wed 17, Thu 18, Fri 19 and Sat 20
GROWTH: 13.35 on Mon 15, Thu 18 and Sat 20
LOVE, LIES AND TAXIDERMY: 13.35 on Wed 17 and Fri 19
We will be using a new system in Roundabout, closed captioning the performances listed above on tablets. The tablets will be supported by flexible stands. Stagetext describes theatre captions as
“similar to television subtitles – the actors’ words appear on screens at the same time as they are spoken or sung. Captions also include additional information such as speaker names, sound effects and offstage noises.”
There will be ten tablets available per show. When booking tickets please alert the Summerhall Box Office that you will be using a tablet so that we are able to set up the correct number of stands before the show.

We’re very pleased to be partnering with Stagetext to bring closed-caption performances to Roundabout this summer. We’ll be launching this at our Roundabout previews at Hackney Showroom – LOVE, LIES AND TAXIDERMY on Sunday 24 July at 2pm will be closed-captioned. Booking info is all here.
We are also offering 5 complimentary tickets for this performance if you wish to make use of the service. Find all the info here.
Here’s what Stagetext say about closed-captioning:
Theatre captions are similar to television subtitles – the actors’ words appear on screens at the same time as they are spoken or sung. Captions also include additional information such as speaker names, sound effects and offstage noises.
If you, or anyone you know, would like to make use of this service please do get in touch as we’re eager to take on board your feedback.
We have a week of closed-caption performances when we’re at Summerhall for Edinburgh Festival Fringe. You can download a list of all the captioned performances at this year’s Fringe here.
Additional access information, including relaxed performances and BSL interpreted performances, for Edinburgh Festival Fringe can be found here.
We look forward to welcoming you to Roundabout!
