Olivia Colman helps unveil new tech for deaf theatre goers

The National Theatre has demonstrated what it says is the next step for theatre goers, when it comes to the experience they'll have.

The South Bank venue says from next year, part of its programme of new work will include augmented reality - which will help audience members with hearing impairments.

The announcement came with a short performance of Lucy Kirkwood's Mosquitoes, starring Olivia Colman and Olivia Williams.
