Jabberwocky – Relaxed Performance

The relaxed performance is provided for people who would benefit from a more relaxed environment, or are uncomfortable with sudden lighting changes or loud noises, including those with an Autistic Spectrum Condition, sensory or communication needs or a learning disability.

SIGNED PERFORMANCE: A BSL sign language interpreted performance will also be available on Sat 20 Dec at 1pm.

‘We all had a fantastic time, and both our children thoroughly enjoyed themselves.  I spent a lot of the performance just watching their faces because they were so animated and engaged!  Being a relaxed performance definitely helped a great deal as well – we felt under no pressure to make our son conform to the ‘norms’ of theatre going, and having the actors introduce themselves at the start was a good way of demystifying the experience.’


Quirk Theatre and Exeter Phoenix present


Inspired by Lewis Carroll’s classic nonsense poem

‘Tis definitely a bit brillig in Beamish-on-the-Marsh. Slithy toves have appeared on the school playing field, SOMETHING is whiffling and burbling in Tulgey Wood, and Cook is very worried that this might delay lunch.

This Christmas, Quirk Theatre and Exeter Phoenix invite you to take your vorpal sword in hand and join us as we face the Jabberwocky!

Inspired by Lewis Carroll’s classic nonsense poem and retold with Quirk’s finely honed sense of the ridiculous, our latest adventure is a ripping yarn for all primary school kids that will leave you grinning like a cheshire cat.

‘Totally grips young imaginations.’
