Funny, poignant, and feisty, UNWRITTEN collects the true-life experiences of three disabled individuals in the 20th and 21st centuries, as a fundamental part of Scotland’s national story. Disability is frequently discussed in ways designed to make the non-disabled feel comfortable but, in this newly devised production, the audience is invited to leave their comfort at the door…

    Loved the show and listening to the personal experiences realised how little I've heard on tv or in the media in general first hand experiences. Most dramas seem to be from the outside looking in. An beautiful and often heartwrenching show that deserves to be listened to. I hope this manages to get the very serious message out in the open to as wide an audience as possible. Well done to all those involved. Keep up the good work.
