There will not be a dedicated Relaxed Performance for this production. Instead, we have created a Relaxed Pack—a document with information to support your attendance at any of the performances without a dedicated guide.

The Relaxed Pack is a preshow resource that has been designed by Malthouse Theatre in consultation with A_tistic Theatre to support your experience of Because The Night. This document is intended to help you prepare to attend the performance.

The information in this guide is for anyone who wants extra information about the audience experience, content and what to expect in the performance.

When putting the information together, we have considered a range of abilities and needs. This may include but is not limited to people with autism, sensory sensitivities, learning disabilities, dementia as well as those living with anxiety or who have experienced trauma.

You can start a relaxed journey from any entrance.
