Access All Areas TheatreAward winning theatre company Access All Areas return with a fantastical, disruptive, immersive experience that explores what this history means today.
This performance will take place offsite at Barton Arcade, Barton Square, M3 2BH.
Inspired by a refusal to be silent, and a history of being ignored, 5 learning disabled artists take us on a wondrous adventure underground. As they tear back the walls to their lives, past and present spin together in a powerful expression of what it feels like to be learning disabled today.
Over two years, ‘MADHOUSE re:exit’ has built on the legacy of Mabel Cooper, a learning disabled resident of a long-stay hospital, who pressed the button that blew up one of the last of these institutions in the UK. Now, award winning theatre company Access All Areas return with a fantastical, disruptive, immersive experience that explores what this history means today.
