For anyone who would benefit from a more relaxed environment – this can include but is not limited to people with autism, sensory sensitivities, learning disabilities, dementia as well as those living with anxiety or who have experienced trauma. We focus on relaxing – or adapting – the theatre environment and preparing the audience by developing pre-show resources. During these performances, there is a relaxed attitude to noise, doors remain open and lights while dimmed remain on throughout the performance. You can leave the auditorium to take a break and a designated quiet area is available.
