Relaxed performances are specifically designed to welcome people with an Autistic Spectrum Condition, learning disability or sensory and communciation disorders into theatres to give those who otherwise might feel excluded the chance to experience live theatre. They have a less formal, more supportive atmosphere in order to reduce anxiety levels. An easy way to describe them is 'the opposite of the quiet carriage on the train'. There is a relaxed attitude to noise, movement and small changes to the sound levels and some lighting effects in the show.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time on Saturday 22 June at 2.30pm
Relaxed performances provide an opportunity for people who would otherwise find it difficult to come to see the show - for example people who make involuntray noise, or are likely to need to talk a lot, or move around.
