We are delighted to present this specially adapted performance, for those on the autistic spectrum and with other disabilities.

On the night before Christmas, Emily stares out of the window, hugs her teddy and waits excitedly for the morning, while in the corner a little mouse called Eddie can’t understand why only humans are allowed to get presents. So he sets off in search of Father Christmas to find out for himself.

Along the way he dodges the family cat, gets directions from a cowardly robot and is given some unexpected advice from the magical fairy on top of the tree. Will Eddie get an answer? Will Emily get her wish? And what is that funny-shaped present sitting under the tree?

From the team behind hit shows Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!, The Way Back Home and Aliens Love Underpants.

A relaxed performance means:
  • The auditorium lights will be lowered but remain on during the performance
  • The foyers will be open and the audience is free to come and go during the performance
  • There will be a Quiet Zone available
  • Music and sound effects will be quieter and the performances will be gentler in tone
  • No pyrotechnics will be used
