Holloway school puts on play for disabled teenagers
PUBLISHED: 14:22 19 November 2012
Disabled teenagers were treated to an interactive play aimed at people with profound and multiple learning disabilities.
About 18 students at The Bridge Secondary School in Carleton Road, Holloway, watched a production of Tunnels, a play with shades of Alice in Wonderland.
It was staged by theatre troupe Tell Me A Tale, based in Dalmeny Road, in collaboration with the Norwich-based Seeing Beyond company.
Tell Me A Tale’s artistic director Amber Gregory, 28, a former pupil of Yerbury Primary School in Upper Holloway, said: “You or I can decide to go to the theatre tonight, but someone with complex disabilities would not have that opportunity. Why shouldn’t they be able to? It’s just pure entertainment.”
