Event Information

Tuesday 19 June, 1pm & 7pm

Running Time: TBC

Four learning disabled artists perform this fast-moving, raw and eye-opening exploration of the truths and myths about learning disability and parenthood in today’s society. Think pop culture with popcorn, science with silliness, stories with statistics…
