Pay What You Decide means that there is no fixed ticket price. Tickets are available to book in advance as usual, without charge, and there is no payment until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price that you think is suitable based on your experience, and on what you can afford with no obligation to pay if you cannot afford to, or if you decide that the show wasn’t for you.
