This show is authentic to its core. The artists share personal experiences living with disabilities and it is done in such a honest and non-shaming way that you feel safe to be yourself

A cabaret show organised and performed by disabled and chronically ill artists. Much of the show is burlesque, with a bit of (excellent) singing and stand-up, and there wasn't a single dud. Each performance is built around that particular person's struggle, sometimes with humour, sometimes with sass, sometimes with anger, or combinations of these and more. Each performance felt very personal. An excellent show!
