Description

A feisty, female artist sells painted balloons whilst living on London’s streets. Using imagery-based storytelling and shadow puppetry, this play explores themes of ambition, addiction, and escapism. Expressed through humour and raw emotion, the girl and her balloon will take you on a journey through the highs and lows of living outside the system and the battle to cling onto hope when you feel invisible.

General venue access

  • Wheelchair Accessible Toilets
  • Accessible entry: If not taking the lift there is a large flight to 1st floor of hotel then a further 4 steps to venue. Alternatively the building lift can be taken to the first floor and then a platform lift can be used instead of the 4 further steps. The access to the venue itself is along a very narrow corridor with a tight turn and further step, and is unfortunately therefore not accessible to wheelchair users.
  • Wheelchair access type: Not fully wheelchair accessible

  • Stairs: 11- 20
    Number of stairs is provided as guidance and is not in addition to any wheelchair access type (lift/ramp etc) stated above.
