Winner of the Untapped Award 2023
Usually disabled people want to do the right thing. But what if they don't?
What if they were out to make as much money as possible from the guilt of non-disabled, anxious people (like you)? Hot off the back of their smash-hit VAULT Festival and Soho Theatre runs, multi award-winning, disability-led theatre company FlawBored present a scathing satire on the monetisation of identity politics that spares no one.
Winner of VAULT Festival Show of the Week and nominated for two Off West End Awards.

'Witty, hilarious and absurd'
FlawBored is a disability-led theatre company that creates ensemble based work. They formed out of a need to reinvigorate the way access is considered both within shows and within the rehearsal room, believing that it should be thought about from the beginning of the process not added on as an afterthought. They work through play and access is at the core of everything they do; it’s in the way they train their practitioners, the way they devise and therefore it is integrated into the show. They also create unique opportunities for artists and practitioners to reframe the way they think about access. A FlawBored show is cheeky, chaotic and most importantly is not disability ‘trauma-porn’ or ‘pity-porn.’ Their ethos is built by their motto ‘Access is easy if you care’.
