Raise funds to tour Wave to schools for pupils with autism, profound and multiple learning disabilities and severe learning disabilities.

Wave is a vibrant and multi-sensory play for young people (11-26) with autism, profound mulitple learning disabilities (PMLD) and severe learning disabilities (SLD) and their companions. Can you help us to take this show to more schools? 

Tell Tale Hearts is a touring theatre company who specialise in working with young children. But this year we have set ourselves a unique challenge in presenting the Nottingham Playhouse production of Wave this Spring, between April and June 2016. After directing Wave for a national tour last year and seeing the impact the show has on its intended audience, we felt compelled to re-tour the show. The profound and emotional engagement of the audience makes this a very special piece of work, evolved after in-depth research and expertise from its writer, Gill Brigg.  Wave is currently supported by the Arts Council of England Lottery Grants, but to to enable us to take the show to more schools and reach more young people, we need to raise a further £2200.

Set on an Island, where Dad is a weather scientist, Wave explores the sensory world of the weather, the workshop and the beach. Miranda has a dilemma, she loves Dad, but she is an adult now and ready to leave home. How can she tell him without hurting his feelings? Written by Gill Brigg and inspired by Shakepeare's The Tempest the show is age appropriate and explores the wave of emotions from sadness to celebratory moments that both parents and children experience at this time of change.

Quotes from audience members:

"The range of sensory activities was great and the frequency of exploring time was perfect. I think it was also really important and helpful that the students weren't expected to sit and were really allowed to use the space. Really new experience. Very impressed, thank you" Teacher

"..it has the most special music I have ever heard" Pupil
