Ouch! Live storytelling event: We want your stories

Relationships - we want your disability stories for a live event.

Send us your surprising, funny and engaging tales of friendship, dating and love - unrequited or otherwise - that you could tell on stage.

All we ask is that you are disabled, the story is true, and involves disability in some way.

For instance, you are blind and want to speak about the time you thought your partner was snogging someone else in front of you. Or, how your physical differences made intimacy a bit tricky. Or about the unwanted advances of people who assumed you might be easily pleased.

There are loads of great untold stories out there, so tell us yours! Don't give it away in the comments, instead email ouch@bbc.co.uk or send us a message on Facebook. Tell us a bit about yourself and the tale you wish to share and we'll be in touch to let you know the next step.

Oh and if you have a great story, but need some "access" to tell it, we'll work with you to make it happen.

As well as performing it to a friendly crowd, we'll also be filming it for future use.

Keep watching this space for details on how you can get free tickets and be part of the audience in 2017.

Bookmark this page as we'll be updating it with new information and we'll also be giving updates about it on our podcast.
