About the Winner
Created by Tommy aka The Queer Historian, How Disabled Are You? is a show that explores real attitudes towards those who claim benefits and have disabilities that aren’t always visible to the eye.
Tommy asks three disabled people with no performance background to take to the stage and read a script for the first time in front of you, the live audience. What happens when disabled people are stripped of their voice and confronted with opinions filled with pent-up aggression, violence and The Daily Mail?
This show isn’t for their community, it’s an education for those who sit outside it.
Fascinated by history and society that surrounds him, Tommy is a live artist who brings a voice to unheard stories using video, his love of pop music and magic to create reactionary theatre.
