More Information on Mia: Daughters of Fortune
Having kids is not an easy decision: Can I afford it? Have I got enough room? Will I screw it up?
Now imagine making these decisions if you have a learning disability. Woah – wait a minute… learning-disabled parents? Erm, can they do that? Do they even have sex?
Yes, yes ‘they’ do.
Fast moving, raw and eye-opening, Mia explores the truths and myths about learning disability and parenthood in today’s society. Think pop culture with popcorn, science with silliness, stories with statistics. Mia challenges the often taken for granted idea of ‘being a parent’.
A Mind the Gap production, performed by four learning-disabled artists.
£6 tickets are also available to people who are registered unemployed. Please contact box office for more information.
