AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE

 

“I know what people say. How they treat us. But that’s their problem. No one else should give a fuck.”

Kelly is 27, an energetic young woman, never still. You sense that she has powers untapped.

She loves dirty jokes and sea creatures washed up on the shore, hot chips and walks on the beach. And she loves Neil. He has kind eyes and she leaves him breathless.

For her mum, Agnes, life has been a rough journey. But she’s tough, resilient. Her jagged edges are her defence, because being mother to a daughter with Down’s syndrome is hard.

Now she must confront the burgeoning relationship between Kelly and Neil and come to grips with her daughter’s desire for independence and sexual fulfillment.

This radical and heartfelt play is a love story with a difference, and a tender exploration of what living with disability really entails.
