When people ask me about my brother I usually give them the short answer: he has severe learning disabilities, epilepsy and autism. He Ain’t Heavy is the long answer. As Sean cannot go on a national tour due to a love of routine and no concept of theatre, we are going to bring him into the room in other ways.

Performer Grania Pickard returns to Bristol's Trinity Centre to tell the story of growing up with her brother Sean. Using physical theatre, aerial circus, audience interaction and storytelling she brings the world they share to life. Through puppetry the audience see how Sean walks, talks and interacts with the world and how his unique take on life has shaped and influenced Grania.

“You have to see Grania in action: she is a highly skilled circus performer, storyteller and connector, lighting up the entire stage.” LucyLovesCircus

Please note: there will be a relaxed performance at the 3pm performance on the 26th October.
