We’re very excited to finally share details the first outing of this provocative, entertaining and informative new work, devised by the participants of the Crossroads and Seasons theatre programme (St. John of Gods Liffey Region), explores the ups and downs of living with an intellectual disability as we try to navigate the “new directions” of committed social inclusion. But accessing your own community isn’t as easy as it looks when there’s pot holes in the road, support workers interrupting your ‘romantic rendevous’, and stern old ladies who refuse to sell you bottles of wine!
Based upon the real life experiences of the performers, and filled with musical interludes, I’ve a Disability Get Me Out of Here! is a hilarious and heartbreaking journey navigating the past and looking to the future. Don’t miss your chance to see it’s first performance in this intimate setting before the group develops it for bigger venues. Tickets are limited so please email enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org
