  • Paula's Story

    30 April 2014 - 17 May 2014

    When Paula is born with cerebral palsy, medical experts tell the family there is no hope of her ever learning or understanding anything. Spurred on by the love for their daughter, and convinced that there is a connection and understanding there, Paula's parents fight for her to be appreciated as something more than a cerebral palsy statistic.

    Paula’s Story was the very first production in our Studio Theatre and we’re proud to be putting on this show again as part of our 40th year. The fight for all humans to be acknowledged for what they can do runs to the core of Chickenshed’s ethos, making this play as relevant today as it was when first performed in 1993.
