We offer Audio Described performances for all our productions in Stratford-upon-Avon.Audio Description is a live verbal commentary providing information on the visual elements of a production. The description is delivered via a personal headset. The Audio Describers speak between the actors lines, so you won’t miss any of the dialogue.

We also run free Touch Tours before our Audio Described performances. The Audio Describer will take you on to the stage so you can get a feel for the space, and get close to the set, costumes and props used during the play.
