Showstoppers  

1 x 52’  


Showstoppers is a story of ability, friendship and endeavour among a group of drama students with Down’s Syndrome. This documentary follows their journey as they prepare for their first professional performance - One Love - before stepping further into the world of theatre through the formation of a touring stage company.

This documentary captures a year in the students’ lives, showing all the grit, determination, arguments, laughs, love, camaraderie and support that goes into getting this show on stage. While working towards their first professional theatre production, the students also open their lives to the viewers; their jobs, their friendships and their loves.

Co-directed by one of the students, Aimée Richardson, this documentary gives true insight into the students and their lives, and what it is to make your way in a world that waits for nobody, while having an intellectual disability.
