Graeae, the UK's leading theatre company of actors with physical and sensory impairments, have got a colourful new show touring the London and South East region until 22 July. It's called George Dandin, and it's a new interpretation of a Moliere comedy (a "farce with dark undertones", according to director Philip Osment) first performed in 1668.

The production is part of Graeae's Missing Piece intensive training program, an accredited performance training course for disabled aspiring actors.

The show is at London's Sadler's Wells Theatre tonight (Monday), and then goes to Tunbridge Wells and St Albans, as well as venues in east, north and south-east London. Check out the George Dandin production page on Graeae's website for full details of places, dates and times. All performances are audio described and BSL interpreted.
