It’s Ally’s 21st birthday.

It’s time to down your drink, get on the dance floor and go ‘out out’ with best friend Pip.

As the night descends into a haze of expectations vs. reality will it be game over for Ally, or should she just stop playing?

#Unit21 features an ensemble of 9 exceptional actors with learning disabilities and the voices of award-winning comedians Iain Stirling and Amy Webber. Rooted in physical storytelling, Dark Horse promises a bold and entertaining show accompanied by integrated animation and captioning, an original electronic soundtrack, and the option to participate virtually from your seat.

The show will happen in a relaxed environment. This means:
• You can move around.
• You can make noise.
• You can leave and come back.

For more information on access and the access register click here.

You can view the visual for this show here.

Storyhouse is bringing you the opportunity to watch two pieces of professional theatre produced by companies that champion disabled performers and actors. We have created a combined ticket price so you can watch two pieces of professional theatre in March and April. Watch #Unit21 and SUPER! at the end of April at a discounted rate.
