MADHOUSE re:exit - tickets now on sale!

Tuesday 13th March - Wednesday 28th March 2018 at Shoreditch Town Hall

Tickets are now on sale for Access All Areas' new immersive theatre production, MADHOUSE re:exit.

Inspired by a refusal to be silent, and a history of being ignored, 5 learning disabled artists take us on a wondrous adventure underground.

A goddess, a baby, a bird, an eater and a ghost guide us through a maze-like institution, growling to be heard, and waiting for the revolution that is forever promised.

As they tear back the walls to their lives, past and present spin together in a powerful expression of what it feels like to have a learning disability today.

Over two years, MADHOUSE re:exit has built on the legacy of Mabel Cooper, a resident of a long-stay hospital for people with learning disabilities, who pressed the button that blew up one of the last of these institutions in the UK. Now, award winning theatre company Access All Areas return with a fantastical, disruptive, immersive experience that explores what this history means to people with learning disabilities today.
