This is Not a Safe Space

1 Rhagfyr 2018

Weston Studio

Benefit cuts are hitting disabled people the hardest. Half of people in poverty are disabled or live with a disabled person.

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. These are not sob stories - they are well 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.

Expect audience interaction, DIY puppetry, poetic comedy, comedic poetry, and one underclass amputee steering the show.

“fierce use of humour teamed with passionate insight about working-class life”

“a perfect antidote to programs like Benefits Street”
