So your Theatre Spot Test this week is a visual one: you’ve 8 minutes on the clock to name as many of the theatre characters pictured in our test as you can. If you don’t know one, you can Skip it and come back to it later, but be warned: we’re not looking for the actors’/actress’ names, or their show names – we want the part names.

To give you a hand, we’ve thrown in a couple of… errr…. “helpful” clues here and there, but know that, as always in our Theatre Spot Test, there are a few tricky ones too…Good luck!
