Details

"Downs With Love" tells the story of Beth, 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.

"Downs With Love" explores the subject of love and disability and challenges us to consider what we view to be "acceptable". The play has been written around the performers and especially with Abi Brydon, the central actor who attends one of our INSPIRE groups which works with people of all ages who have additional support needs.

"Downs with Love is simply, disarmingly delivered, never labouring its point about the obstacles Beth faces. She asks not for pity but for understanding and equality of opportunity, packing palpable emotional power into a very moving final speech."
