The Incredible and Glorious World According to the Fitzroys

Event Details

A sneak peek into the world of a diverse family. Millie is a single mother of Liam, a boy with Autism and ADHD. Liam and Millie’s world is unconventional to say the least and school well, it’s tricky…

Together with Millie’s sister Sam they fill their life with stories, goddesses, rabbits, song and dance to show you how incredible and glorious life is outside the box…

This show aims to flip perceptions of disability and has been written by Charlotte Nightingale for whom disability is literally in her DNA. As a woman with a chromosome difference she is part of a diverse and unique family. The work is part personal experience and part experiences of whānau for whom like Charlotte disability is their norm. She is currently the General Manager of Touch Compass Dance Co, New Zealand’s leading inclusive arts organisation.

This immersive theatre experience has a diverse cast of professional and youth performers with and without disabilities and an original score from Gareth Pring and his 13 year old son Sonny. The show is performed partly in NZ Sign Language with direction and choreography from Jeremy Hinman. The lead role of Liam is played by talented youth performer Daniel Nielson.

This show has strong language. Recommended for audiences of age 13+
