Reliably informed

Led by and made for people with learning difficulties and disabilities, independent theatre company The Lawnmowers will take to the ARC Stockton stage on Tuesday 9th November. This time they’ll be performing their new show Retake, Remake!, an honest and inspirational performance where they reclaim films that had been made about disabled people but without disabled actors or advice.

The Lawnmowers have used this production to research and explore the outdated and overrated practises of Hollywood and the main stream media. As part of this investigation, they will be taking the audience on a journey through a range of challenging topics, from dating to eugenics.

With moments of intensity, and an analysis of the disabled experience, there are also fun and heart-warming parts to the show. Making use of lip-syncing, they are able to rewrite, retell and investigate a range of popular culture including films, music and more.

The Lawnmowers hope that this patchwork style show, which knits together so many different areas to investigate, will be an ‘eye opener’ to all those watching. The goal is to use performance to educate and one day create a fair and equal society. A cry for acknowledgement and respect, Retake, Remake! is designed to challenge, entertain and enlighten.

Retake, Remake! is at ARC, Stockton on Tuesday 9th November
