True Stories from the Heart
The head teacher looked at me and said “I’m afraid you have to leave this school. There is no place for you here.”
Contained is a vibrant, compelling and personal new show from England’s largest professional learning-disabled theatre company: nine interwoven true stories about family and friendships, love and loss, the everyday and the extraordinary.
I introduced Zara to drumming lessons! She’s really good! She’s brilliant! She’s fantastic! She’s my girlfriend!
Combining live performance, film, photography, music and dance, Contained explores those small moments in life that suddenly become meaningful: moments that teach us about ourselves, and the world that we live in.
