READ MORE ABOUT BRUCE’S WORK

After meeting in 1989 at a gig, two cabaret performers, comedian Barbara and activist-performer Alan, fall in love. Fueled by their passion and life experiences of mistreatment by an ableist society, they help found DAN, the Disabled People’s Direct Action Network, and lead protests for disabled people’s rights which eventually lead to the Disability Discrimination Act of 1995. As the movement grows and the pair have a child of their own, the pressure begins to wear on their relationship.

The production prioritised disabled talent and visibility, including 17 disabled actors, 55 disabled supporting actors and 50 per cent senior editorial team representation, in addition to extra help from disability groups as consultants and co-ordinators.
