More Information on What Are They Like?

Adolescence is a rough ride. You’ve got existential angst, mood swings, fashion fiascos, terrifying physical changes, never enough money… And that’s just the parents.

What Are They Like? explores the everyday struggles of parenting, growing up, and the issues that every family faces – in one generation or another. This fast-paced, collection of real-life cautionary tales are brought to the stage by a company of young people aged 11-19 from West Yorkshire Playhouse’s Youth Theatre.

Join us for a post-show discussion on Friday 18 March, with cast and creatives to explore the play, discuss rehearsals, and have your questions answered.

What Are They Like? will be performed as part of the National Theatre Connections Festival (Tue 26 – Sat 30 April) performance date to be announced.

Captioned Performance

Open captioning allows theatre goers with varying degrees of hearing to view the full text as it is spoken or sung, including sound effects and off stage noises. These appear on a scrolling screen, positioned on or at the side of the stage.

British Sign Language Interpreted

A Signed performance is the usual full production with the addition of a British Sign Language Interpreter who stands on the stage interpreting the show for Deaf attendees.

Audio Described

Audio Described performances are designed to improve the experience of visually impaired and blind attendees. As well as listening to the dialogue on stage the customer can wear a headset and listen to a live description of the action on stage.

Relaxed Performance

A relaxed performance is a specially selected show from our programme, with slight adaptations to make it suitable for an audience of young people or adults with learning disabilities. This may include extra lighting, additional wheelchair spaces and the freedom to move to alternative seating if required.

Dementia-Friendly Performance

A relaxed performance with adaptations to technical aspects of the show, flexible seating options and a relaxed attitude to audience responses and movement in the auditorium. In our front of house space we will have a quiet room, clearer visual markers and signage, and additional staff and volunteers trained to sensitively and respectfully welcome people living with dementia and their supporters to this show.
