Booking Recommended: Up Down Man at Tobacco Factory Theatres

Myrtle Theatre Company, Tobacco Factory Theatres and Salisbury Playhouse come together to present Up Down Man, a show written for and starring a Bristol actor with Down’s syndrome.

Nathan Bessell’s show asks the question that every parent whose child has a disability wonders about. What will happen when I’m not here? The show invites audiences to look at the world in a new way, inspired by the real stories from families of young people with Down’s syndrome.

The show will be at the Tobacco Factory Theatres on Raleigh Road from Wednesday 08 until Saturday 18 November.

There will be three Relaxed Performances for this show. This means people with additional needs that may otherwise find attending theatre difficult will not have to worry about the conventions of audience and their needs will take priority.

Relaxed Performances: Thursday 09 November 1.30pm, Thursday 16 November 1.30pm & Saturday 18 November 2.30pm

BSL Interpreted Performance: Thursday 16 November 1.30pm

Tickets Full £16 / Concession £12

Age recommendation 12+

Running time 1hr 10mins
