Concrete Youth & Barnsley Civic announce West End show

Sensory Cinders is a new sensory pantomime adaptation of Cinderella for audiences labelled with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD), featuring original music that explores themes of identity, self-expression, transformation, magic, personas, authenticity, and connectedness.

What does it mean to pursue self-love and understanding in a world that doesn’t understand you?

Sensory Cinders marks the first West End show and the first inclusive sensory pantomime specifically designed for audiences labelled with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD).

The production features specially designed sensory materials by Henshaws Arts & Crafts, a Yorkshire-based collective supporting local learning-disabled visual artists. The show marks all the artists’ professional theatre debuts.

Sensory Cinders is a co-production from the multi-award-winning sensory theatre company Concrete Youth and the nationally recognised venue Barnsley Civic. The production is presented in partnership with Soho Place and Henshaws Arts Centre.

Sensory Cinders is supported by Sheffield Theatres and Arts Council England. The production’s development was supported by the National Theatre’s Generate programme.
