Performances feature a live narration, via headset, of the play’s action, sets, and costumes. The pre-performance description begins at 1:45PM, with live description beginning at 2PM. Audio description receivers and headsets are available in the theatre lobby at the concierge desk.
Yale Repertory Theatre thanks the Eugene G. and Margaret M. Blackford Memorial Fund, Bank of America Co-Trustee, for its support of audio description services for our patrons.
