PETER PAN 

A co-production with Bristol Old Vic.  Devised by the Companies, based on the works of JM Barrie

All children, except one, grow up... 

When Peter Pan, the leader of the Lost Boys, loses his shadow during a visit to London, headstrong Wendy helps him reattach it. In return she is invited to Neverland – where Tinker Bell the fairy, Tiger Lily and the vengeful Captain Hook await. Exploring the possibilities and pain of growing up, it’s a riot of magic, mischief, music and make-believe.

Director Sally Cookson brings her wondrously inventive Peter Pan to the National Theatre after a sell-out, critically acclaimed run at Bristol Old Vic Theatre. 

★★★★★ “Fantastical and funny. Must- see family entertainment”- Mumsnet

★★★★★ “A dazzling production” – Radio Times

★★★★ “ticks all the Christmas boxes for adults and children” The Times

 
Relaxed performances are specifically designed to welcome people with an Autism Spectrum Condition, sensory or communication disorders, or learning disabilities. There is a relaxed attitude to noise and movement, and some small changes made to the lighting and sound effects. An easy way to understand the atmosphere is perhaps ‘the opposite of the quiet carriage on the train’. There will be a ‘break out’ space and friendly ushers on hand to assist. 

A Visual Story, a short information document emailed/posted to all bookers prior to performance, will contain information and pictures about the performance, plot, characters and some information about the venue to help prepare visitors for their visit to the theatre. 

Peter Pan is suitable for children aged 7+. Bookers will need to decide if the show will be suitable for the person’s cognitive (and not necessarily chronological) age. 

Running time: 2 hours 30 minutes, including a 20-minute interval

Tickets: adult £16 / under-18s £10

RELAXED FAMILY SCREENINGS: Bill

Directed by Richard Bracewell (2015), PG, 92 minutes

Saturday 11 February, 11.30am, Cottesloe Room

Infectious energy and brilliant gags from some of the team behind Horrible Histories. This film tells the story of 'what really happened' during Shakespeare's 'lost years' – how the hopeless lute player Bill Shakespeare left his family and home to follow his dream. Along the way he encounters murderous kings, spies, lost loves, and a plot to blow up Queen Elizabeth. 

During the screening, there is a relaxed attitude to noise and movement and some small changes made to the light and sound effects. The cinema lights will be on low and the volume turned down slightly. There will be no trailers or advertisements before the film starts and you are welcome to move around the cinema space if you want to. 

Tickets: £3.50
