Event description

Description

Hold Your Peace is a drama production devised and performed by learning disabled adults. Set in 1919 it tells a tale of the impact of the Great War on learning disabled people and will be accompanied by conversation and a real 'peace tea.’ Join us at Headway ArtSpace for some tea, cake and good theatre!

Creative Director Allie Walton-Robson said: “We are looking back 100 years to discover the history of learning disabled people during this era which is not well documented. Some of the material is challenging - life was very different then. Our cast of 5 includes 4 learning disabled actors. We aim to question attitudes to learning disabled people and to highlight their abilities through the telling of this, their history. It's a serious subject we treat with dignity to both move and entertain our audience"

This year Hold Your Peace will be touring Nationally to commentate the 100-year Anniversary of Peace Day and to coincide with Armistice Day.
