Come bunker down with Kathryn Hall in this hilariously honest take on the ups and downs of finding adulthood in a youth shelter while learning to manage cerebral palsy.

Blending comedy, drama, puppetry, dance and one very special quilt, Sheltered is an autobiographical rollercoaster that playfully challenges perceptions of disability.

From learning how to cook from teenagers, while studying in an impossibly inaccessible school system, to navigating a merry-go-round of therapists and doctors, Kathryn’s cheekiness and vulnerability will have you cry-laughing!
