Please note this is a Relaxed Performance which has been carefully adjusted to reduce anxiety or stress for those who might otherwise find attending a performance a challenging experience.
For example, someone with autism, sensory and communication needs and/or a learning disability might be reluctant to attend public theatre performances. Relaxed performances make it possible for families to experience theatre together in a relaxed environment.
These performances offer a relaxed environment as adjustments are made to reduce anxiety or stress, such as changes to lighting and sound to eliminate surprise and soften their impact.
Staff and performers will have a relaxed attitude to noise from the audience and customers are free to move around the auditorium during the performance.
