As part of our efforts to be more accessible, the Centre is offering this Relaxed Performance – designed to make theatre spaces more welcoming for audience members who may experience anxiety, are sensory-sensitive, or are not comfortable with the conventions of a theatre setting.
Contains strong language and mature themes. Recommended for ages 10+.
After suffering an unthinkable loss, a Scottish mother must rely on her strength, sense of humour, and fiercely loyal group of friends to raise her boys and protect them from the harsh and ever-changing world around them. Set in post-war Scotland, MAGGIE tells the inspirational tale of a fiery school cleaner living in the mining town of Lanarkshire.
Based on a true story, this heartfelt show features a soul-stirring score by award-winning recording artist Johnny Reid. A tribute to Johnny’s Granny and the people of an almost forgotten generation, this exciting new musical is a celebration of family, community, and the joy and laughter that can be found, even in the darkest of times.

What are Relaxed Performances?
Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.
These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
