About Perfect Show for Rachel

Step into Rachel's world in this experimental show as a learning disabled artist has the power to lead the creation of her ‘Perfect Show’. Rachel is a theatre-loving, enigmatic 31 year-old who loves Kylie Minogue, heckling from the front row and seeing people falling over. She is a learning disabled care-home resident, and sister to Flo, Zoo Co’s Artistic Director. Sitting on-stage on a throne with her custom-built tech desk, she takes charge as the director of every unique performance in real-time. A touch of a button can trigger music, lighting, theatrical scenes or choreography, brought to life instantly by a company of performers. Zoo Co Theatre are a multi award-winning company creating theatre that loudly champions access. Perfect Show for Rachel was developed with Rachel, to create a show on her own terms. It explores who defines artistic taste, and questions who that currently excludes. Zoo Co are winners of the Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust Award in 2022. All performances include creative captioning, live captioning and an integrated BSL performer in the cast, meaning it will be accessible for deaf and Hard of Hearing audiences. Additionally, all performances are Relaxed Performances. Age Recommendation: 14+
