Overview

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 audiences, Declaration 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.

A level of empathy and understanding that smashes apart stereotypes and stigma.

Creative Workshop - Thu 11 Oct, 6pm-8pm

ADHD isn’t only the media spun image of a young boy tearing round a supermarket, it’s so much more than that. With so much focus on boys, women and girls with ADHD can feel invisible, but not anymore. Declaration creator Sarah Emmott will be running a creative workshop to explore making ADHD your best friend and greatest asset!

This free workshop is designed for people aged 14+ who have ADHD. Places in the workshop are limited - to book yours, contact Colette Auer on 02082791002 or email colette@stratford-circus.com

Post-Show Panel Discussion - Sat 13 Oct, 8pm
