What does the word “care” mean to people with disabilities?
What happens if they want to break free from the protection of their carers?
These issues are examined in a new comic drama by award winning North West writer Cathy Crabb.
“Beyond the 4th Wall” begins in a perfect paradise called Cul De Sac where people with disabilities are being cared for.
The problem is, the people being cared for know there is another world outside and want to leave.
A team of actors, who are living with disabilities themselves, bring the dilemmas to life in the play, which is at Knowsley Leisure and Culture Park on April 26.
The actors from Proud and Loud Arts devised the drama over a six to eight month period to discover what “care” means.
“Each of the performers created their own characters and crafted them to create a narrative with the writer Cathy Crabb.
“This process and the support of specialist arts professionals gave the cast control of the material.
“It’s exciting for the whole company to play a venue the size of Knowsley Leisure and Culture Park. We can’t wait.”
Beyond the 4th Wall contains some strong language and will be performed at the leisure and culture park, in Longview Drive in Huyton at 1.30pm and 7pm.
Tickets are £6 and you can get them from the centre or by calling 0151 443 2200. For general enquiries about the show and group bookings, call 0151 443 5749.Picture caption: The Proud and Loud Arts members in the comic drama Beyond the 4th Wall.
