Downs With Love

“Downs With Love” tells the story of Beth, a young girl who has Down’s Syndrome and explores the subject of love and disability and challenges us to consider what we view to be “acceptable”.

About Downs With Love

Beth is a young girl who has Down’s Syndrome. She lives a very independent life, has her routines and lives simply but happily. She is helped by a new support worker, Tracy and they soon strike up a friendship. On a Friday night, she goes to the pub to watch Mark, a local singer. Beth loves Mark but the problem is - Mark loves Tracy who loves both of them. Complex and challenging issues arise for all.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Downs With Love are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
