Mainstream culture picks and chooses aspects of marginalised groups to be made cool or sexy but disability hasn't been made sexy... yet. 'It's a Motherf**king Pleasure' is an irreverent dark comedy looking at the pervasive monetisation of identity through the lens of disability. We will be making the show with integrated access at the core of the process. We will be developing the show over a 4 week period during August with work-in-progress showings at Greenwich Theatre in September.
