“Downs With Love” tells the story of Beth, a young girl who has Down’s Syndrome. She lives a very independent life, has her routines and lives simply but happily. She is helped by a new support worker, Tracy and they soon strike up a friendship. On a Friday night, she goes to the pub to watch Mark, a local singer. Beth loves Mark but the problem is – Mark loves Tracy who loves both of them. Complex and challenging issues arise for all.

“Downs With Love” explores the subject of love and disability and challenges us to consider what we view to be “acceptable”. Can we accept seeing a couple – one of whom has Down’s and the other does not? Do we understand the complexities and issues surrounding love and disability? The play has been written around the performers and especially with Abi Brydon, the central actor. Cutting Edge Theatre have worked with Abi, taking her own feelings, challenges and experiences growing up with Down’s and creating a very real, moving performance around her.
