A Mind the Gap Production
Devised and Directed by Joyce Nga Yu Lee

Having kids is not an easy decision: Can I afford it? Have I got enough room? Will I screw it up? Now imagine making these decisions if you have a learning disability. Woah – wait a minute… learning-disabled parents? Erm, can they do that? Do they even have sex?

Yes, yes ‘they’ do.

Fast moving, raw and eye-opening, Mia explores the truths and myths about learning disability and parenthood in today’s society. Think pop culture with popcorn, science with silliness, stories with statistics. Mia challenges the often taken for granted idea of ‘being a parent’.

Proud to be part of the Great Exhibition of the North.
