An all ages show that is accessible to everyone.

With trademark whimsy and intense positivity, Spectra returns with a new adventure for all the senses. All ages and abilities are welcome as we set off on an extraordinary journey to find out whether you can be you and still be part of your crew.

Is it only what we have in common that binds us?

This performance is unseated and includes 15 minutes of walking on wheelchair-friendly paths. Seating can be provided where necessary.

Our first two performances will form part of FORGE, events that seek to increase programming of performances by learning disabled artists. These two events are produced in partnership with Open Theatre Company and MotherShip.

10 May FORGE: Forging Inclusive Programming, 11.30am-4.30pm
£35 (For programmers, producers and venues)

11 May FORGE: Forging Ahead, 11.30am-4.30pm
£35 (For learning disabled performers and companies, and their support networks)

Bursary places available for each of the above performances.

Magical, suspenseful, surprising, delicious. Such a uniquely warm and magical atmosphere. The way you connect with the audience is extraordinary! Spectra is a performance company that draws on the diverse creativity of its mixed professional and learning disabled community cast.
