This show shines a light on the subject of domestic abuse and as such, discusses themes of an adult nature, sexual violence and domestic abuse.
During the show a break-out space will be available to audience members, providing a safe and calm environment for anyone affected by the subject matter. A qualified therapist will be on hand to provide short term support and re-direction to other services as required. This room is a short walk from the Pit and is signposted. A Barbican host can show you the way. You will be able to re-enter the performance whenever you’re ready.
Barbican becomes a J9 venue
Beginning with the opening of Smack That (a conversation), the Barbican is becoming a J9 venue. This national initiative aims to provide safe and secure opportunities for people to disclose domestic abuse and access a full support system. Staff at each J9 contact point are trained to signpost, advise and spot the signs of domestic abuse. Each venue has a safe place where people can access information and use a phone to call for further help. Look out for the pink J9 heart. Find out more here.
