The Likes of Me draws on autobiographical content to create an abstract narrative that explores the politics and social philosophies of negative eugenics, evolution and mutation (adapting to environments/changing environments), social stigma about disability, and the ‘freak culture’.

The Likes of Me is a powerful piece of contemporary interactive theatre that has received high praise by audiences that have attended its various incarnations.
