Ticketmaster Summer in Stages

Retake, Remake

Company: The Lawnmowers Theatre Ensemble
Running time: 1h 00min approx

The actors take back films made about learning disabled and disabled people but without learning disabled or disabled actors.

The show however is more than an investigation into a Hollywood practice, it takes the ensemble and its audience on a wild-water-ride, discussing topics like dating, ownership, sexuality and eugenics. In a patchwork of film, music and popular culture the members of the ensemble ask for respect for people with learning disabilities.
