Downs with Love

20:00, 22 Jun

Beth is a young girl who has Down’s Syndrome. She lives a very independent life, has her routines and lives simply but happily. She is helped by a new support worker, Tracy and they soon strike up a friendship. On a Friday night, she goes to the pub to watch Mark, a local singer. Beth loves Mark but the problem is - Mark loves Tracy who loves both of them. Complex and challenging issues arise for all.

 

'a ground-breaking new show.’
'the play represents a powerful step forward for people with Down’s Syndrome in Scottish Theatre'

The Scotsman

 

'Never before have I experienced such liveliness while sitting on a theatre chair. The incredible range and strength of emotions turned this night into a truly unique experience. Not being used to such emotional roller coasters I left the theatre with watery eyes and true joy and gratitude towards Cutting Edge Theatre for their mission of “bringing theatre to people who may not usually have access to it.'
