RELAXED PERFORMANCE OF THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME: MONDAY 3 JULY (7:30PM)
Next month Project Aspie, in partnership with the Birmingham Hippodrome, offers ‘Alphabet 12’ users the unique opportunity to attend a live ‘relaxed’ performance of the National Theatre’s acclaimed production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time for free.
The Olivier Award-winning Best Play tells the story of 15-year old Christopher Boone, who has an extraordinary brain- exceptional at maths, while ill-equipped to interpret daily life. He has never ventured alone beyond his road, he detests being touched and he distrusts strangers. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbour’s dog, it takes him on a journey that upturns his world.

A visual story and film to help prepare for your visit
A supportive environment with trained and welcoming staff
A relaxed attitude to noise and movement during the show (including the opportunity to use Audio Description equipment if desired)
Chill out spaces for use at any time
