Sophie: “A celebration of what life can be like with an older sister with Down syndrome”

A new autobiographical one-woman show heading to Waterside Arts Centre in Sale...

“Thanks for joining us tonight for Sophie’s birthday. I can’t believe my big sister is 30! Where have all the years gone?”

‘Sophie’ by Emily Curtis was first commissioned in 2019 in its early stages of development, and after a couple of cancelled tours (due to you know what) this unique and heart-warming story is finally coming to Waterside Arts Centre in Sale on Thursday 28th October.

An autobiographical one-woman show, the play is a celebration of what life can be like with an older sister with Down syndrome.

“Sophie is my older sister and she has Down syndrome, but that has never stopped us dancing to 90s girl hits, snogging boys and causing mischief when we were growing up in Hull.”

Join Emily as she travels through the years, navigating her way through womanhood and sisterhood, with a sibling who has additional complex needs.

The play uses physical theatre, dance and digital elements to tell this incredible story. Sophie is assistant director on the play and has chosen most of the fabulous music.

The performance will be BSL interpreted.
