About

Benefit cuts are hitting disabled people the hardest. The future looks grim, so how can we get people to sit up, listen and care and not keel over with empathy-fatigue? Award-winning poet and theatre maker Jackie Hagan's way has been to make a new solo show that features the real voices of proper skint disabled people she knows. Jackie has conducted interviews with people from all over the country living on the fringes and the spaces in between. They are not sob stories, they are fully rounded lives full of the spiky humour and the complicated weirdness of being human. Jackie weaves these narratives together with poetry and anecdotes, celebrating the weird, the wonky, the unruly, and the resilient. Commissioned and supported by Unlimited, celebrating the work of disabled artists, with funding from Arts Council England. Supported with funding from BlueSCI Wellbeing, Contact and Full Circle Arts. Produced by Big Feast.
