Disability inclusive and accessible shows at Theatr Brycheiniog
After the appointment of our new theatre director, David Wilson, Theatr Brycheiniog is delighted to announce that we are working on increasing the accessibility and inclusivity of our theatre programme. Following the huge success of the British Sign Language and relaxed performances of Sleeping Beauty, we would like to take this opportunity to highlight a number of performances we have coming up that specifically cater for individuals with both physical and learning disabilities.
Visiting Theatr Brycheiniog is easy with onsite parking and accessible facilities on every floor. Plus most shows have concession tickets for registered disabled, and teachers and HYNT registered carers and come free, making booking accessible for all.
Into The Light (Sat 2) is a daring and powerful piece of physical theatre that explores the bittersweet attraction of the spotlight and our desire for interactions and connection through social media. Featuring an inclusive cast of 9 performers from three European countries, Into The Light seeks to expose the unique capabilities of neurodivergant and Down’s Syndrome performers. Guaranteed to be an evening of surprising, provocative and thought provoking entertainment; these talented performers will confound all your expectations.
On the 14th March, Taking Flight Theatre Company present peeling, an immersive and immensely funny play from award winning playwright and leading disability ambassador, Kaite O’Reilly. With interwoven British Sign Language, live audio description and English captions at every show, peeling challenges the big questions such as ‘who get to make art?’ and ‘whose stories do we share?’ allowing audiences to experience theatre afresh. Taking Flight Theatre Company has been celebrated for their unique style, and making their inclusive cast an essential part of their identity rather than a mere box ticking exercise.
The much loved story of the mischievous but naive Pinocchio comes to Theatr Brycheiniog on the 19th March. This multifaceted and organic interpretation of the childhood classic allows us to dive into the imagination of a child-puppet - a tale which invites us to reflect on values such as education, graft, responsibility and sincerity. This performance has no language and is suitable for the hard of hearing.
We welcome all queries about any shows we have coming up and please don’t hesitate to let us know how we can help accommodate you by calling Box Office on 01874 611622.
