  • Relaxed Performance of Jack & The Beanstalk | Altrincham Garrick

    Garrick Production Relaxed Performance of Jack & The Beanstalk Date range Tickets £14 - £18 Venue Main House Age guidance 3+ Trigger warning Find out more Book now Running time TBC Group bookings Find out more Accessibility Find out more Jack & The Beanstalk Pantomime WHAT IS A RELAXED PERFORMANCE? If you are a parent, guardian, or work with people with learning or sensory disabilities – such as those on the autism spectrum – you’ll know how difficult it can sometimes be for them to attend regular theatre performances; loud noises, lighting effects and large crowds can make stage shows overwhelming. At Altrincham Garrick Playhouse, we believe that everyone should be able to experience the magic and wonder of live theatre, and our Relaxed Performance of Jack and the Beanstalk will provide the same fantastical Pantomime but with an atmosphere and attitude in the auditorium that makes everyone feel comfortable and safe. WHAT TO EXPECT FROM OUR RELAXED PERFORMANCE: At a Relaxed Performed, you are free to: - Come and go from the auditorium as you wish, even during the show - Express yourself as loudly as you like, or with physical movement, without judgement - Access the Theatre and auditorium early. You’ll also notice that we will reduce the sound and lighting to lessen sensory overload, and no pyrotechnics or loud bangs will appear in the performance.

  • Waiting for Godot | Altrincham Garrick

    Garrick Production Waiting for Godot Date range Tickets £12.50 - £14.50 Venue Altrincham Garrick Studio Age guidance 12+ Trigger warning Find out more Book now Running time TBC Group bookings Find out more Accessibility Find out more Written by Samuel Beckett Directed by Celia Bonner Two wandering tramps, Vladimir and Estragon, wait by a lonely tree, to meet up with Mr. Godot, an enigmatic figure in a world where time, place and memory are blurred and meaning is where you find it. The tramps hope that Godot will change their lives for the better. Instead, two eccentric travellers arrive, one man on the end of the other's rope. The results are both funny and dangerous in this existential masterpiece. When Samuel Beckett's play exploded on to the London stage in 1953, it shocked as many people as it delighted. There had never been a play like it; indeed it was said that: "Beckett has achieved a theoretical impossibility—a play in which nothing happens, that yet keeps audiences glued to their seats.” Today, Waiting for Godot is accepted as one of the most significant plays of the 20th century.

  • The Father | Altrincham Garrick

    Garrick Production The Father Date range Tickets £10 - £16 Venue Main House Age guidance 14+ Trigger warning Find out more Book now Running time 2.5 hours (inc. 20 mins interval) Group bookings Find out more Accessibility Find out more The Father (Le Père) is a play about a man called Andre. Now 80 years old, Andre was once a tap dancer. He lives with his daughter Anne and her husband Antoine. Or was he an engineer whose daughter Anne lives in London with her new lover, Pierre? The thing is, he is still wearing his pyjamas, and he can’t find his watch. He is starting to wonder if he’s losing control… A sobering and realistic family story, and an unsentimental, emotionally intense look at the world through the eyes of a man experiencing dementia. The Father , in this English translation by Christopher Hampton, was commissioned by the Ustinov Studio, Theatre Royal, Bath and premiered in October 2014. The production transferred to the Tricycle Theatre, London, in May 2015, and subsequently to Wyndham's Theatre in the West End. The Father was awarded the Moliere Award for Best Play and the Olivier and Tony Awards for Best Actor. In 2020 a film version called The Father was released starring Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Colman, which won the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay, while Hopkins won the Academy Award for Best Actor.
