Dr Gill Brigg wrote 'White Peacock', a vibrant multi-sensory play written for audiences aged 11 and above labelled as having profound and multiple disabilities. It tells the eventful story of the last night of Sam's school holidays and features live music, singing and digital projection in a purpose-built micro-theatre. Each 50-minute performance is for up to six young people, with one-to-one companion support. Produced by Roundabout at Nottingham Playhouse, the play attracted great critical acclaim on its first tour in 2010. As part of her PhD, Gill also wrote guidelines for theatre-makers wishing to work in this challenging field. This is a film of Gill Brigg's project.
