Show aimed at teenagers tackles self-acceptance

Instinctive, curious, bold and bouncy; Sarah is a mighty proud square peg, which wouldn’t be such a problem if the hole wasn’t so damn round.

Sarah grew up feeling different. Her childhood doctor thought it was sugar. Her current doctor thinks its ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder). Sarah still feels different, so what will a label do? Will it change the way you see her and the way she sees herself?

With autobiographical storytelling, comedy, and conversations with the audience, Declaration, presented by Art With Heart, is a vibrant and daring adventure of school day survival tactics, super-hero alter-egos and the stumbling blocks to self-acceptance.

Developed in consultation with medical professionals and mental health support groups, Declaration examines the faces we wear to fit in and what happens when we dare to stand out.

The show, which is aimed at those aged 14-plus, can be seen at Derby Theatre Studio on November 17 at 8pm.
