Francesca Martinez has made a name for herself as an actor, a comedian, and an outspoken campaigner on disabled rights; she has cerebral palsy, and delivered a powerful speech against government cuts on BBC’s ‘Question Time’. Now she’s adding another string to her bow by writing her debut play ‘All of Us’. She’ll star in it as a woman whose life is on the brink of being dismantled by austerity politics.
From Francesca Martinez, the award-winning author, comedian and actor, comes an unmissable new play directed by Ian Rickson(Paradise, Translations).
Jess has a great life: a job she loves, a sharp sense of humour and a close group of friends.
When austerity threatens the world she has worked hard to build, Jess makes a stand to protect those she holds most dear.
Capturing the humour, sadness and joy of everyday life, All of Us is a passionate and timely look at the human cost of abandoning those who struggle to fit in.
