'Relaxed' theatre for autistic children

Help

Special "relaxed performances" of children's theatre shows, adapted for children on the autistic spectrum, are being put on in several playhouses across the UK.

Subdued lighting, quieter sound and a chill-out area outside the auditorium are just some of the changes making the performances easier for the children to handle.
