"Moxie Brawl offers a delightfully Irish blend of comedy, theatre and dance with an unashamedly female driven political focus. It’s a charmingly tongue-in-cheek romp"

Fringe Review (Nadia Strahan about History Of Ireland)

All performances are also Relaxed Performances. The show has an informal atmosphere which can be particularly suitable for anyone who feels more comfortable in a relaxed environment which allows for noise and movement, or exit/re-entry when needed. 

This may include children, young people and adults with neurodivergence such as autism, learning difficulties and other sensory or communication needs. 

The show does feature amplified music and there is also quite a lot of visually stimulating content.

Pre-show access orientations happen an hour before each show. 

These sessions, run by the company, are for any audience members who would benefit from having time to familiarise themselves with the theatre space, see/touch the set pieces, and get a sample of some of the sounds in the show. 

Moxie Brawl's Access Support Worker, Neelam, can be involved as much or as little as you'd like. She can share information about the space or leave you to explore in your own time.

The sessions last for 30 minutes. There is no need to book separately, just show your ticket.
