Growing up Deaf in a family with a secret concealed from both her and her siblings, shaped Jenny Sealey’s childhood. Discovering the truth a few years ago, she was sent into a spin as she realised that her life could have been so very different. Now, the award-winning Artistic Director of disabled-led theatre company Graeae, is ready to share her experience with an audience in Self-Raising, a blisteringly honest, reflective, and often laugh-out-loud funny one-woman show.
Self-Raising is presented by Graeae in association with Soho Theatre and Theatre Iolo, and was developed with The Incubator at The Egg, Theatre Royal Bath.
*Show dates available outside of Edinburgh Deaf Festival, from 2nd – 27th August.
