We are creating a relaxed version of our exhibition, The Play’s The Thing, so that more people can enjoy our award-winning journey through theatre making in Stratford-upon-Avon.

Visitors to the relaxed version of The Play’s The Thing will be given kits containing ear defenders and a copy of a sensory map.

The exhibition will have its displays carefully adjusted with visitors’ needs in mind, including volume adjustments and consideration of flashing lights. There will be advance warnings for exhibits that make noise so visitors can feel at ease, and we’ve made a visual story with pictures of the exhibition and useful information.
