Jackie Hagan and Big Feast

This is Not a Safe Space

1 December 2018

Weston Studio

Austerity isn’t over and the future looks grim, so how can we get people to sit up, listen and not keel over with empathy-fatigue?

Multi award-winning writer and comedian Jackie Hagan has a backstreet wit and council estate heart.  With her trademark warmth and humour, she explores the world of life on disability benefits, looting and losing out, doctors and psych wards, lads with rock hard bravados and mums who know the score – and the presumptions we make about it all.

Jackie has interviewed 80 people disabled by society, and the show features their real voices. These are not sob stories - they are well-rounded lives full of the spiky humour and pride in who they are and where they come from. Jackie weaves these narratives together with poetry and anecdotes, celebrating the weird, the wonky, the unruly, and the resilient.

Expect lots of laughter, maybe some tears, and one working class amputee steering the show.
