Hare & Tortoise Relaxed Performance

Friday 11 December 2015 at 10.30am & Saturday 2 January 2016 at 10:30am

Neville Studio - Tickets: £7


We are delighted to present a performance especially for people with learning disabilities and their families and carers so that everyone can enjoy the magic of Hare and Tortoise, in an environment that is comfortable and supportive. Carefully created for people with on the autistic spectrum, or with a learning disability, sensory or communication disorder relaxed performances are also great for those with dementia. We’ll reduce elements of surprise and bangs, crashes and flashes will be kept to a minimum. The house lights will be partially up throughout and noise and moving around the studio is no problem.

About The Play

“The world was winter: shivery and shaking…
Tortoise sleeping: sound and silent…
Hare was waiting, wishing, wondering
When will Tortoise wake?”

Hare is always in a rush. Everything is SOOOOO exciting! Tortoise, on the other hand, takes her time, notices the smallest of things and loves every minute, living life to the full.

Join us for this magical modern classic, and follow Hare and Tortoise through the seasons as their wintry world turns firstly to spring and then finally summer as the two friends get ready to race each other!

A fast (and slow!), fun-packed show about friendship, the passing of time, and the excitement of growing up suitable for 4 to 8 year olds.
