About this event

A reflection on our obsession to 'heal' what cannot be cured; manage what is none of our business and ignore what makes us uncomfortable.
Real, raw stories from the disabled/chronically ill community and plenty of suppressed anger. Exploring what it means to be disabled when surrounded by echoing platitudes, empty gestures and wannabe heroes.

"A compelling show that strikes hard at the communal heart: it is a performance which even may begin a new chapter in social policy...Rachel successfully turns insight and real life experience into provocative theatre" - Weekend Notes Melbourne

"Entertaining, intellectually stimulating, and socially significant...you will laugh, groan, and cry - often all in the same breath" - What Did She Think

"Illuminating and engaging" - The Blurb

NOTE: The only Auslan Interpreted performance is March 8th
