A last-minute call out from The Roaring Girls saw me and a couple of friends attend the show at The Hull Truck Theatre on the 31st May 2019.
Managing to secure a wheelchair ticket was easy a quick email followed by a phone call and I was booked. For prior booking they have online booking available for wheelchair spaces.
I arranged a lift to the venue and my friends met me outside and pushed me into the building, the first thing I had to do was pick up my ticket, again this was simple, and they had a wheelchair accessible section at the reception desk.
Once I had my ticket, seeking out the lift we all went upstairs for a drink.
The show was in the Studio theatre which is the smaller of the two on the ground floor, back into the lift and headed to the theatre, access was easy and Emma and I sat on the front row with me in my wheelchair just to the left of her, so we had the best view we could have had.
Now on to the show, what can I say that hasn’t already been said, these girls are amazing, their timing is immaculate and the range of emotions you go through watching this show is beyond anything I have ever witnessed.
If a story could tell my life, the ups and downs of body positivity, the cat calling, the hating yourself, the way other people react to you, the way you are supposed to look, right through to putting that bikini on and heading to the beach and guess what no one died, and a fantastic time was had by all.
I truly can’t recommend this show enough and so pleased and proud for them to be hitting Edinburgh Fringe this year, if they aren’t up there with the stars of the show I don’t who will be.
These girls deserve everything that is coming their way and more.
If you are going to Edinburgh Fringe please check them out, you won’t be disappointed.
As for accessibility at Hull Truck deserves to receive my first 10 they have it nailed on with online booking for wheelchair accessible seats, accessible sliding doors, a lift to the first floor, disabled toilet and excellent wheelchair seating, I can’t wait for my next show now.
