Touch Tour and Relaxed performances of Peat at the Ark March 2019

Theatre: Peat (Touch Tour and Relaxed Performance)

16 Mar 2019 (Past)

The Ark

The Ark presents the world premiere of a brand new theatre show for ages 8+ by Kate Heffernan. Directed by Tim Crouch

How far down is yesterday?

On the edge of a town, in the middle of a bog, half way between a school and a housing estate, Rayy and Jo have come to dig a hole. Peat is the story of the things they bury, and the things they find.

With lightness and humour, this new play for children asks big questions about life, death, time and history. A conversation between two 11-year olds who find themselves standing on top of everything that has ever happened, it is a story of friendship, loss, and finding our place in the world.

A show for everyone who has ever wondered where things go when they leave us.

Touch Tour
There will be a touch tour  on Saturday 16th March at 1.15pm. The tour is free if you purchase tickets for the 2pm show.
During a touch tour, audiences can experience and contextualise the stage. Audiences will explore the space, and may like to handle selected props, costumes and furniture. A Touch Tour is useful for audiences with visual or sensory impairments.
For more information and to book a place on the Touch Tour, please contact The Ark on (01) 670 7788 or boxoffice@ark.ie

Relaxed Performances
There will be relaxed performances of Peat on Thursday 14th at 10.15am and 12.15pm and Saturday 16th March at 2pm. Relaxed performances are aimed at families or school groups with children who are on the autism spectrum or those who have sensory sensitivities and 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.

A relaxed performance information pack, with photographs and a synopsis of the play which may assist your child to prepare for the performance will also be available closer to the show.
