Audio description (AD) is additional commentary that explains what’s happening on stage. The action of the play is described through a headset by trained people so that you can follow what is happening at the same time as the rest of the audience.
We offer touch tours ahead of audio described performances with the opportunity to experience the set, costumes and props used in the play – for more information, please email email@example.com or call on 020 3925 2998.
Captioning is live subtitling for theatre. The character names and what they are saying are displayed on large screens next to the stage. The subtitles run at the same time that the lines are said, along with sound effects. To ensure you book tickets with captioning screens visibility, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 020 3925 2998.
SIGN INTERPRETED PERFORMANCES
We offer performances with British Sign Language (BSL) interpretation, where the interpreter stands to the side of the stage. When booking for a signed performance, please contact the box office so that we can give you a seat where you can see the signer clearly. For more information, please email email@example.com or call on 020 3925 2998.
A relaxed performance is where the ambience of the auditorium and theatre ‘rules’ are relaxed. The performance may also be adapted to support people’s needs; for instance, loud noises and music might be turned down. These performances are ideal for anyone who would benefit from a more relaxed environment. We also offer touch tours for relaxed performances – for more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 020 3925 2998.
A chilled performance takes a more casual approach to noise and movement in the auditorium, but the performance itself is unchanged. This performance is ideal for people who feel more at ease knowing they can go in and out of the auditorium during the show. This performance is for everybody and babes in arms are welcome (not walking or requiring their own seat).
