During the production of Kerbs, we offered creative workshops to the local community alongside the show. The workshops explored love, humour, relationships and disability politics drawn in the play.
Sex, disability and romance, patronising attitudes and broken toilets. Participants explored the themes of Kerbs as they unpicked the play and the characters’ quest for independence and romance while contributing to a nation-wide installation of Love Letters.
Follow us on Instagram to take a look at all the love letters made during these workshops. (@graeaetheatrecompany)

Kerbs by Michael Southan. A Graeae and Belgrade Theatre co-production for Coventry City of Culture
I haven’t come here to drink tea – Toni, we’re off out to find the nearest happy hour.
Lucy and David are dating. Or at least, they’re trying to.
Faced with first-date disasters, a few crossed wires and Lucy’s mum, what they really need is a bit of space, a bit of fun – and ideally some independence. Escaping for the weekend to a caravan park in Somerset, it’s time for them to find out if their spark will finally catch, or burn everything to the ground.
Written by Graeae’s own Write to Play graduate Michael Southan and directed by Nickie Miles-Wildin (Cuttin’ It, Crips without Constraints), Kerbs gets real about romance, sex and disability, while tackling the universal challenge faced by anyone experiencing a new relationship: letting someone in.
Every Kerbs show will feature Graeae’s signature integrated creative captioning and audio description.
