Iconic local theatre company The Lawnmowers’ brand new production Without Us, a story about the sacrifices parents make for their children and the fact that ultimately, those children need to fly. With warmth and humour it depicts one man with learning disabilities’ journey to discover his own voice, identity, and purpose.
