A GROUP of aspiring disabled actors performed a radio play in front of a full and appreciative audience.
Members of Herts Inclusive Theatre (HIT) ‘Acting Up’ adult group performed at the Aspire National Training Centre in Wood Lane, Stanmore, on Sunday, December 16.
It was a murder mystery in the style of crime writer Agatha Christie and set in the roaring Twenties on board a cruise vessel. The show was called All Aboard the SS Aspire.
The group, made up of adults with learning and physical disabilities, had devised and scripted the performance – involving audience participation and various members of the cast playing multiple roles – themselves.
The Mayor of Harrow, Councillor Nizam Ismail, said: “I was really amazed of the talent the entire cast displayed in their dialogue in the performance.
“I wish to congratulate them for their hard work in producing such a lively performance which I very much enjoyed.”Herts Inclusive Theatre is a non-for-profit organisation offering children, young people and adults, many of whom have learning and physical disabilities, the opportunity to participate in drama, dance and music.
