The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time will offer audiences BSL (British Sign Language), Audio-Described, Captioned and Relaxed and Sensory Adapted performances during its Wembley run and there will be a number of access performances on tour.

WEMBLEY

Relaxed and Sensory Adapted Performance – Wednesday 5 January 2022 at 2pm

This performance is the eighth relaxed and sensory adapted performance of this play to take place since The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time began performances in 2012. It is for anyone who would benefit from a fully relaxed and sensory adapted performance, including autistic and learning disabled people and people with epilepsy. The performance will have a more relaxed environment and allow for noise and movement in the auditorium, with parts of Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre made available as a quiet space to relax for audience members who may need time away from the auditorium. The performance will also include technical changes made to the production, such as adjustments to light, sound and special effects, for those with sensory sensitivities. There will be trained and welcoming staff around the theatre for the duration of the performance.

A visual story is now available to download here. The visual story was created in consultation with Access All Areas who have also supported the casting process and will continue to work with the National Theatre and the acting company across the tour.

Tickets are on sale now and access tickets can be booked for £25 via [email protected].
