Inspired by a refusal to be silent, and a history of being ignored, 5 learning disabled artists take us on a wondrous adventure underground.


A goddess, a baby, a bird, an eater and an escapist guide us through a maze-like institution, growling to be heard, and waiting for the revolution that is forever promised. As they tear back the walls to their lives, past and present spin together in a powerful expression of what it feels like to be learning disabled today.

Over two years, MADHOUSE re:exit has built on the legacy of Mabel Cooper, a learning disabled resident of a long-stay hospital, who pressed the button that blew up one of the last of these institutions in the UK. Now, award-winning theatre company Access All Areas return with a fantastical, disruptive, immersive experience that explores what this history means to learning disabled people today.
