Ten friends. Three idiots. One protest. One accidental murder. Let us take you on a journey to Sunny Side Day Center, where we will challenge your expectations of what exactly the learning disabled community can do.

Went to see this on Wednesday and really enjoyed it. It's a funny play performed mainly by a cast of adults with learning disabilities and shows that they can act and entertain as much as anybody. The play gives the cast a platform to showcase their talents and change the perceptions of those with learning difficulties. It's definitely worth seeing!

This is an enjoyable show with a delightful cast. Its message is 'why are characters with disabilities almost inevitably played by able bodied actors?' The cast of 'Dear Mr Dead Head' proved that those with physical or learning disabilities are perfectly capable of acting and would be much more authentic in such parts. Well done, Elektric Apple - I hope your voice gets heard.
