Relaxed performance of Fairview

Relaxed Performances offer a warm welcome to people who feel they would benefit from a more relaxed environment when watching a show. They give everyone permission to relax and respond naturally to the production.

What is different about this performance?

  • Before the show starts, a member of our Front of House team will introduce themselves and our team of friendly ushers who will be on hand throughout the performance to provide assistance should anyone require it.
  • This introduction will also let everyone know that there is a relaxed attitude to noise and movement from the audience during this performance. 
  • There will be an open-door policy in the auditorium, so audience members can come and go as they please throughout the performance .
  • There is a designated 'chill-out space' in a separate room outside the auditorium for guests who may need quiet time away from the performance. 
  • We have listed some content advisory notes at the bottom of this page, which should help you decide whether this performance is for you.

Who is a relaxed performance for?

Anyone should feel welcome to attend. There are many reasons why people may benefit from a more relaxed attitude to noise and movement from the audience. Some people may choose to attend as part of an access requirement, as well as for many other reasons. 

Wheelchair users

Wheelchair users can book tickets online, choosing from the available wheelchair positions marked with a wheelchair symbol. If you require a transfer and/or a free companion ticket, please select the relevant ticket price type after selecting your seat. This will ensure we can prepare the seating area accordingly ahead of your visit.

Companion Tickets

If you have access requirements which mean you require a companion to accompany you on your visit, please select a free companion ticket price on the seat beside your full price seat.

Free companion tickets are capped online, so please only book if you require one, in order to be as fair as possible to those who cannot attend without a companion. 

Can people with babies attend?

The age recommendation of Fairview remains at 14+, however if you have babes in arms and find it difficult to attend the theatre because of childcare requirements, then a relaxed performance may be beneficial for you. Please select the Adult with baby ticket if you are bringing a babe in arms. Only one baby can be brought with each adult, so if you wish to bring more than one baby to the show you will need an equal number of adults to hold them in their laps.

The Young Vic has a relaxed attitude to breastfeeding/ expressing in all areas of the building, and we have change stations in private cubical toilets on both levels of our cafe/ bar area. At this performance, we will provide storage space for buggies/ prams/ strollers. To guarantee a buggy space, please select a Buggy Park ticket when you purchase your show ticket.

FAIRVIEW - What's the Show about?

It’s Grandma’s birthday and the Frasier family have gathered to celebrate. Beverly just wants everything to run smoothly, but Tyrone has missed his flight, Keisha is freaking out about college and Grandma has locked herself in the bathroom.

Following a ground-breaking, sell-out run in New York, Jackie Sibblies Drury’s Fairview is an interrogation of our subtly destructive preconceptions. This radical examination of power is directed by the Young Vic’s Genesis Fellow and Associate Director, Nadia Latif in a brand new production premiering at the Young Vic.

Fairview is the winner of the 2019 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize for female playwrights
