Description

Trapped in the bathroom with an evil tattie, Jack wrestles with the reality of living alone. Jack Hunter's inspiring* debut comedy is full of heart and a half-empty bag of Weetos. A true tale of twins growing up with cerebral palsy. Jump aboard the "strugglebus" with Jack as he steers through the intersectionality of disability, whilst honking at societal attitudes and Eddie Redmayne's career choices. Supported by Summerhall's Mary Dick Award. Developed through Playwrights' Studio Scotland's Disabled Playwright Programme. Jack recently starred in the Pulitzer Prize-winning Cost of Living at Hampstead Theatre. *Inspiration not guaranteed.
