Relaxed Performance (Autism Friendly): The Slightly Annoying Elephant

Our Christmas 2019 show based on the book written by David Walliams and illustrated by Tony Ross.

What’s big, blue, bossy, and turns up uninvited?

A slightly annoying elephant, of course! One day Sam gets a very big surprise as a tired, hungry, antique-loving, cycling enthusiast elephant turns up on his doorstep. Adopting an elephant at the zoo turned out to be a lot more than he bargained for as he didn’t realise the elephant would actually come to live with him – silly boy!

Returning to HOME following Wow! Said the Owl and Red Riding Hood & the Wolf, Little Angel Theatre are back with this hilarious story by comedian and author David Walliams, brought to life through puppetry.

This play is based on the original book The Slightly Annoying Elephant written by David Walliams and illustrated by Tony Ross. Illustrations © Tony Ross 2013. Licensed by HarperCollins Children’s Books.

What is a relaxed performance?
Relaxed events are designed for people  with autism spectrum conditions and their families so they can enjoy the arts together in a stress-free environment. These events are also suitable for people with sensory conditions or learning difficulties.

For this event, we will tone down any loud noise and lighting effects, keep the auditorium lights on low, and we take a relaxed approach to movement and noises. A separate chill out space will be provided if you need some time out of the performance.
