Jackie Hagan: This is not a Safe Space
Jackie Hagan is a council estate queer with one leg. The multi award winning playwright, stand-up comedian, poet, theatre-maker and activist brings us a stripped-back version of her award-winning Unlimited commission ‘This is Not a Safe Space‘.
Based on interviews with 80 people on disability benefits and in response to her massive cob-on about the representation of working class and disabled people on telly and in theatre. Expect angry poetry about being the undeserving poor, some stump action, the opportunity to win a Fray Bentos pie and expect to leave feeling like you’ve had a kick and a cuddle to the heart.
Venue: The Studio
