At 2.30pm on Wednesday 22 June, there will be a ‘relaxed performance’ of the Olivier Award-winning The Railway Children – Live on Stage at London’s King’s Cross Theatre.  Relaxed performances are designed to benefit those with autism, sensory and communication disorders or a learning disability. 

The National Autistic Society has worked closely with the production and advised on adjustments to the show and talked to both front-of-house staff and the cast to increase understanding of autism.  There will be volunteers on hand on the day from the National Autistic Society.

Some adjustments will be made to the production as necessary including sound and lighting levels and some sound and smoke effects.  Audience members will be able to leave and enter the auditorium throughout the show as needed and a chill-out area will be available in the foyer.  ‘Visual Stories’ (detailed information and photos) of both the theatre and the show will be sent to all bookers in advance.

In addition, Mousetrap Theatre Projects will have 250 seats at £15 each for this performance, which will be offered to all special secondary schools in Greater London – these schools encompass a huge variety of learning needs, not only those on the autistic spectrum.

The relaxed performance is open for general sale as usual and there are no restrictions other than the usual age related ones (children under 2 will not be admitted, children under 11 must be accompanied by an adult).  There are access rates of either £24.75 or £12.50 (with the usual complimentary companion seats).
