A Mind the Gap production

Having kids is not an easy decision: Can I afford it? Have I got enough room? Will I screw it up?

Now imagine making these decisions if you have a learning disability. Woah – wait a minute… learning-disabled parents? Erm, can they do that? Do they even have sex?

Yes, yes ‘they’ do.

Fast moving, raw and eye-opening, Mia explores the truths and myths about learning disability and parenthood in today’s society. Think pop culture with popcorn, science with silliness, stories with statistics. Mia challenges the often taken for granted idea of ‘being a parent’.

A Mind the Gap production, performed by four learning-disabled artists.

Created and Directed by Joyce Nga Yu Lee.

 ‘Poignant, yet without a shred of self-pity, her production is leavened further by a hefty dose of silly, sometimes pleasantly dark, humour’
Dave Fargnoli – The Stage

‘Mind The Gap always produce excellent and absorbing theatre, Daughters Of Fortune: Mia is one more to add to their list of shows that should be compulsory viewing.’
