May Play - Spinally injured teenagers taking to the stage

Whether through a car accident, falling from a horse or diving into a shallow pool; spinal cord injury happens in a split second. For a young person with their life ahead of them, their hopes and dreams are shattered, their future empty. In October 2008 we will run our first course for young spinally injured people in London. It will be a week long residential arts course for 13-17 year olds culminating in performing a play to an audience of parents. We’ll take a group of 17 people and take them from nervous debutant actors to a cohesive group full of confidence to take back to their everyday lives.
