“Thanks for joining us tonight for Sophie’s birthday. I can’t believe my big sister is 30! Where have all the years gone?”
Sophie is my older sister and she has Down syndrome, but that has never stopped us dancing to 90s girl hits, snogging boys and causing mischief when we were growing up in Hull.
Come and join us on my autobiographical one-woman show, where I travel through the years, navigating my way through womanhood and sisterhood, with a sibling who has additional complex needs.
The play is a celebration of what life can be like with someone like Sophie in it!
‘Hiding Place Theatre’ commissions artists with inspiring and untold stories. ‘Sophie’ by Emily Curtis was first commissioned in 2019 in its early stages of development. After a couple of cancelled tours - due to you know what - we are delighted to be sharing this unique and heart-warming story.
