HOW DISABLED ARE YOU?

PRESENTED BY THE QUEER HISTORIAN
This powerful and experimental piece of theatre explores the challenge for the disabled community to be heard in the face of broad stroke Daily Mail prejudice and aggressive, institutionalised opinions.

Tommy – a writer and performer with experience of living with disability and the benefit system – asks two disabled people with no performance background to join him on stage and read a script for the first me in front of you, the live audience. 

This powerful and experimental piece of theatre explores the challenge for the disabled community to be heard in the face of broad stroke Daily Mail prejudice and aggressive, institutionalised opinions. 

This is a show that explores real attitudes towards those who claim benefits, disabilities that aren’t always visible to the eye and was created when Jeremy Kyle was still shouting on TV. 

This isn’t a show for the community, it’s for those who sit outside it.

Part of 96 Festival. Check out the full lineup here.
