About

Our protagonist is ‘an inspiration’, ‘so brave’, and tired of hearing it.

As a disabled athlete, she takes pride in her athletic prowess. But after receiving news she did not make the Paralympics team, she starts untangling the ways in which she’s internalised the extreme expectations society puts on disabled people.

Ellen Renton’s new spoken word theatre show is a one-woman performance based on her personal experience of living with albinism, and confronts everyday ableism.

This show is taking part in our £1 Tickets project.

Commissioned and supported by Unlimited, celebrating the work of disabled artists, with funding from Spirit of 2012. Supported by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland.
