The most awarded highlight of the 2012 Adelaide Fringe Festival was Sons & Mothers, a new play created and performed by the Men’s Ensemble of No Strings Attached Theatre of Disability.
For over two years award winning director Christopher Houghton captured the development and rehearsal process of this powerful play. The result is an inspiring and intimate portrait that pays homage to art, theatre and cinema.
Heartwarming, funny and refreshingly honest, Sons and Mothers invites audiences to leave their view of disability at the door and instead, through the sheer delight of the Men’s Ensemble, experience what it is like to be simply human.
