A highly accessible production of Beckett’s challenging monologue, performed for the first time by someone with Tourettes.
The experience explores neurodiversity, and asks who is allowed to perform what.
Not I is located within a formal yet relaxed space, which hints at the intense performance to come, whilst carefully offering a warm welcome to people who find it difficult to follow the usual conventions of theatre behaviour.
It is “immediately apparent that access has been given deep and considered thought from the start… The whole vibe feels, well – relaxed.” – DisabilityArts Online
