Birds of Paradise are celebrating 25 years of championing disabled voices in theatre with a special anniversary revue at Deaf Connections, Glasgow on Wed 31 Oct.

The Hallowe’en night will feature some of the UK’s best disabled performers including¬†Jess Thom (Touretteshero), Laurence Clark,¬†Harry Josephine Giles, Sally Clay and Toni Jerrett. Audience members will have a chance to win prizes from the Tron Theatre, Lyceum Theatre, WEST Brewery, Nairn’s Oatcakes, Rockstar Games and more.

The celebration comes at the end of a tumultuous year for the company. The low came at the start of the year when their core funding was controversially cut by Creative Scotland, only to be reinstated following a public backlash. The high came with the success of their show with the National Theatre of Scotland, My Left / Right Foot, in August, which won a Fringe First and Herald Angel award. The revue is planned to see the company leave their silver anniversary year on a high.

The evening will be fully accessible, with BSL interpretation, audio description, live captions and will be performed in a relaxed atmosphere where people are free to make noise and move around if they wish.

Tickets are priced £20 with optional donation and can be booked via www.boptheatre.co.uk/25threvue or on 0141 552 1725
