He Ain’t Heavy

Book now
Grania Pickard tells the story of growing up with her disabled autistic brother Sean.

Grania uses physical theatre, aerial circus, audience interaction and storytelling to tell her story. 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.

“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.”

Produced by Turtle Key Arts.
