Description

Just Aretha is the story of a black disabled woman navigating an able-bodied world, striving to hold onto her African and disabled identity. It is a comic, semi-biographical observation of disability, culture, and Aretha’s joys, woes, dreams and nightmares. We meet the people in her life who have shaped her: from her mother who just wants to 'carry my grandchild', to her Auntie who says 'if only she had two hands'. Just Aretha is an exploration of disability and culture, examining what that means in 21st-century Britain.
