Jackie Hagan: This is Not A Safe Space

Date:Sat 27 Apr
Time:8 - 9pm
Venue:J2
Price:Festival Day Pass: £12.50 | £8 cons

Jackie Hagan has council estate bones, one leg and a cob-on about class. 

In 2018 she interviewed 80 people living on disability benefits and in this hilarious and deeply effecting solo show she sensitively explores our presumptions, fears and passions regarding who in society deserves our respect, help and how we should deliver it.

A poetic comedy about disability and life on benefits. Featuring the real voices of proper skint people, a spot of stump puppetry and deeply poetic comedy. Full of warmth and free crisps, sensitively handled and very funny.
