Background


Flute Theatre, who make work especially for young people with Autism and their families, return to the Orange Tree after last year's inspiring performances of The Tempest.

Synopsis


Up to fifteen children on the spectrum become the participants for each performance, sitting with six actors in a circle on the stage.


The children's families or carers sit just behind them to watch from the auditorium.


The actors invite the participants to help them unravel Shakespeare's story through sensory games which the children and actors play together.


Although the games and the narrative remain the same for each performance, the show is completely different every time depending on the nature of the young people who attend.
