Shake It Up

Part of Birminghamfest 2022 –

A fiercely funny, no-holds-barred comedy about modern life living with Parkinson’s. When a local community group turns up for their weekly meeting, they are surprised to find themselves in the fantasy world of Snow White and the Seven Symptoms. Be prepared to expect the unexpected and have your awareness of Parkinson’s raised – along with a big smile! A brand-new theatre company formed on Zoom in lockdown made up of People with and Supporters of People with Parkinson’s. Following the success of their sell-out shows in Nottingham and at the Leicester Comedy Festival. Developed with Community Vibe and National Lottery funding from Arts Council England.
