I know that some of you will be in rehearsing Verona on Monday 23rd September but wanted to highlight to everyone else, the chance to see a powerful, thought provoking play highlighting disability hate crime. ‘I am Me’ written and directed by PACE’s Jenni Mason features Daniel Cameron (ex PACE, RCS) as Charlie, the main character in the play. Daniel is supported by Alan Orr, Angela Moore, Mark Inglis, Heather MacInnes and Scott Kerr.
The play launches to an audience of over 100 important and influential people on Monday 23rd September during the day but having spoken to many of you who wished to see the performance, we have put on an additional performance at 7pm on the evening of 23rd. All tickets are priced at £5 and can be reserved through PACE Box Office on 0845 130 5218. It is always nice to support other performances and to broaden your cultural horizons. Charlie’s story will open your eyes and make you think! Please encourage, friends, family and fellow ‘house’ mates to come along – you cannot fail to be moved by this story! The play lasts approx. 45 minutes.
1 million people in Scotland are disabled or have a long term illness? 93% of children with learning difficulties have been bullied and 46% of children with learning disabilities have been physically assaulted. Burke Harvey’s blog post offers legal solutions to these issues.

I have always lived with my mum but I have just got keys to my own flat. I am happy to get my own flat. I am Charlie. This is me. I am me. And this is my story…”
