3 MEMOIRS OF DISABILITY. 3 HISTORIES OF A NATION.
A new show about disability premiering at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, August 2017…
The boy without superpowers. The girl who spoke to the dead. The man who broke chains. UNWRITTEN collects the poignant but often comical true-life stories of three disabled individuals with wide-ranging impairments, placing them in a cultural and historical context from the Act of Union to the 21st century, as a fundamental part of Scotland’s national story.
UNWRITTEN is produced by Disability History Scotland/Bella Freak with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The show is written & performed by Sasha Callaghan, David Nicol and Stuart Pyper. The production will premiere at Theatre 3, The Space @ Surgeon’s Hall (Venue 53), with previews on Friday 4th and Saturday 5th August, followed by a main run from Monday 7th – Saturday 12th August. The shows on August 4th, 8th and 12th will be accessible performances with a BSL interpreter and captioning for Deaf/deaf audience members, and audio description for the visually impaired.
