Mia: Daughters of Fortune

Pop culture with popcorn, science with silliness, stories with statistics.

Having kids is not an easy decision: Can I afford it? Have I got enough room? Will I screw it up?

Now imagine making these decisions if you have a learning disability. Woah – wait a minute… learning-disabled parents? Erm, can they do that? Do they even have sex?

Yes, yes ‘they’ do.

Fast moving, raw and eye-opening, Mia explores the truths and myths about learning disability and parenthood in today’s society. Think pop culture with popcorn, science with silliness, stories with statistics. Mia challenges the often taken for granted idea of ‘being a parent’.

About the company

Mind the Gap

Mind the Gap is one of Europe’s leading learning disability theatre companies.

We work in partnership with learning-disabled artists to deliver a bold, cutting-edge and world-class artistic programme that impacts locally, nationally and internationally. Work that excites, surprises and challenges audiences.

Our aim is to make great theatre that makes audiences think differently. By “theatre” we don’t just mean shows that you can see in arts and theatre venues, but also performances and events in different spaces and places.
