WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
We know you want to look, to stare even. It's OK. You're allowed. As disabled people, our bodies are central to how we exist in the world. They're the way others first judge us, the subject of medical diagnosis, and usually seen as the reason that we can't take part in society. And yet, they also carry with them volumes of stories about incidents, scrapes and calamities. Let us tell you how we perceive ourselves. A collection of funny, sad, touching and surprising stories about disabled people and their bodies by actor Robert Softley, co-creator of National Theatre of Scotland's Girl X.
