Dublin Theatre Festival: Aston’s Stones at the Ark (autism friendly performance)

14 Oct 2016 (Past)

The Ark

Aston is a little dog who wants to take care of all the stones he can find. Some are big and some are small. One is sad, another one feels cold. All of them need to be taken care of.

Every stone gets to follow Aston home and is greeted with a warm and cosy bed. His two parents, although very patient and understanding, gradually get more and more worried about the increasing number of stones in their living room.

This story is about how easy it is to love and the ability to see and to appreciate the value in small things – even in a little stone.

Autism friendly performance on Friday 14th October, 12.15pm
Autism friendly performances are aimed at families or school groups with children who are on the autism spectrum or those who have sensory sensitivities. This will be a relaxed performance, that will be tailored for the comfort of your child. The sound will be at a lower volume and the lights will be dimmed rather than completely dark, we will warn you of any loud noises and we will have a special chill-out area where your child can relax.

An autism friendly information pack, with photographs and a synopsis of the play which may assist your child to prepare for the performance will be available in mid-September

For further information please contact The Ark on (01) 670 7788 or boxoffice@ark.ie.
Booking opens 16th August
