What Are Relaxed Performances? Relaxed Performances, sometimes called Sensory Friendly Performances, are open to all audience members who could benefit from a more relaxed atmosphere at the theater. These performances feature a relaxed and inclusive attitude towards making sounds, moving, and using assistive devices; adjustments to the severity of sound and lighting cues; and quiet areas outside of the theater, for anyone who needs a break. A.R.T. works in consultation with an occupational therapist and other professionals to develop supports for each relaxed performance, which may include a social narrative and pre-show introduction to the characters. Relaxed performances offer accommodations to the theater-going experience and do not fundamentally alter the content of the productions.
A proper local legend, Alvita will tell her life story to anyone in the local West London pub--there's no shame in her game. The question is: are you ready to hear it? Because this woman's got the gift of the gab: she can rewrite mistakes into triumphs, turn pain into parables. And her love life? It's an epic poem. They call her the Wife of Willesden. Join her for an evening that celebrates the human knack for telling elaborate tales, especially about our own lives. Winner of the 2022 Critics' Circle Theatre Award for Most Promising Playwright, critically acclaimed and multi award-winning best-selling author Zadie Smith transforms an excerpt from Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales into the unbelievable--and unforgettable.
