Peter Pan

Relaxed performances

There will be a Relaxed performance of Peter Pan on Saturday 21 January at 2pm

★★★★★ ‘Excellent. Witty. Wonderful.’ Daily Telegraph

All children, except one, grow up...

This winter, JM Barrie's much-loved tale takes flight. When Peter Pan, leader of the Lost Boys, loses his shadow during a visit to London, headstrong Wendy (Madeleine Worrall, Jane Eyre) helps him re-attach it. In return she is invited to Neverland – where Tinker Bell the fairy, Tiger Lily and the vengeful Captain Hook (Anna Francolini, wonder.land), await.

Following the acclaimed Jane Eyre, director Sally Cookson brings her wondrously inventive Peter Pan to the NT after a sell-out run at Bristol Old Vic. Exploring the possibilities and pain of growing up, it’s a riot of magic, mischief, music and make-believe.

Age range – Suitable for 7 yrs+, so bookers need to make a decision as to whether this is suitable for their child’s (or the person they are bringing) cognitive (not necessarily chronological) age.

Relaxed Performances are specifically designed to welcome people who will benefit from a more relaxed performance environment, including people with an Autism Spectrum Condition, sensory and communication disorders, or a learning disability.

There is a relaxed attitude to noise and movement and some small changes made to the light and sound effects.

An easy way to understand the atmosphere is perhaps, 'the opposite of the quiet carriage on the train'.

A Visual Story is a short information document containing information and pictures about the performance, plot, characters, and some information about the venue to help prepare visitors for their visit to the theatre. These will be emailed/posted to all bookers prior to the performance

Running time is approximately 2 hours 30 minutes including a 20 minute interval.

Relaxed Family on Screen: Bill

dir. Richard Bracewell, 2015, PG, 92 mins

Date: Sat 11 Feb, 11.30am, 

Location: Cottesloe Room, 

Tickets: £3.50

Infectious energy, brilliant gags from some of the team behind Horrible Histories. This film tells the story of 'what really happened' during Shakespeare's 'lost years' - how the hopeless lute player Bill Shakespeare left his family and home to follow his dream. Along the way he encounters murderous kings, spies, lost loves, and a plot to blow up Queen Elizabeth. This is a genuinely good family film which will properly entertain all ages.

Relaxed Family Screenings at the NT are specifically designed to welcome people who will benefit from a more relaxed performance environment, including people with an Autism Spectrum Condition, sensory and communication disorders, or a learning disability. We aim to make the events as inclusive as possible for families so they are open to all, even if you don’t need the adjustments we make for relaxed screenings.

There is a relaxed attitude to noise and movement and some small changes made to the light and sound effects, we’ll keep the cinema lights on low and turn the volume down slightly. There will be no trailers or advertisements before the film starts and you are welcome to move around the cinema space if you want to.
