Disability Awareness Event: In Someone Else’s Shoes

Disability Awareness Event: Spectrum Theatre Sheffield’s production of their play “In Someone Else’s Shoes” at the Drama Studio on Monday 10th July 2017 (doors open 1730 for 1800 start).

As part of the Faculty’s commitment to supporting the diversity, social accountability, and equal opportunity for students and staff, we are hosting Spectrum Theatre’s production of their play “In Someone Else’s Shoes” at the Drama Studio on Monday 10th July 2017 (doors open 1730 for 1800 start).

This play tells the story of living with the diagnosis of being on the spectrum disorder from the viewpoint of those people on the spectrum and those who aren’t. This entertaining and thought-provoking play explores the issues of what being on the autistic spectrum is and what questions it asks of so-called “normal” people – whatever that means!

After the play there will be a Q+A / discussion session with the cast of the play, Anna Nibbs SFHEA, Enterprise Education Developer here at the University of Sheffield (see recent THE piece by Ann here), BBC Radio Sheffield’s Paulette Edwards and others.

We strongly recommend that anyone who is supporting students in any capacity take time to attend this innovative, exciting and informative event.
