Mia: Daughters of Fortune
Summerhall Festival - Old Lab
Having kids isn't easy. Now imagine you have a learning disability… whoa! Can they do that? Do they even have sex? Yes, yes “they” do. Fast moving, raw and eye-opening, Mia explores the truths and myths about learning disabilities and parenthood in today’s society. Think pop culture with popcorn, science with silliness, stories with statistics. A Mind the Gap production created/directed by Joyce Ngayu Lee, performed by four learning-disabled artists. ‘Thought provoking, devoid of self-pity and stylishly presented, Mia is a stimulating examination of an issue that demands wider consideration’ (David Cunningham, Manchester Theatre Awards).
