Audio Described Performances (via headphones) offer a live narration describing the action in the pauses between between the onstage dialogue, for those that are blind or partially sighted.

Oxford Playhouse programme audio described performances about 3/4 times a season. They are advertised on the same page as the production in the OP Season Brochure.

If you, or anyone in your party, would like to try or use audio description please let box office know when booking so that they can ensure there are enough headsets, that you are seated in the best area of the auditorium and so that they can inform you of any other linked facilities such as touch tours.

Free Touch Tours accompany these performances and are a chance to explore the set before the show begins. Please click here to visit our Touch Tours page.
