Cabinet Of Curiosities: How Disability Was Kept In A Box

How the medical profession historically shaped our perceptions of disability

Mat Fraser, critically acclaimed actor and performance artist, is here to take you on a journey through an alternative history of disability. Mat became inspired after spending a lot of time with the specimens and documents held in the collections of the Science Museum, Hunterian Museum, and Royal College Of Physicians, and he uses many of these items to tell his story. Sometimes challenging but always fascinating, tonight combines drama, comedy, and cabaret into a live act that compels us to reconsider our attitudes. General admission. The performance is BSL interpreted and includes a post-show discussion.
