Event Description

Into My Own
By Glenys Evans
Directed by James Williams and Gaynor Lougher
Hijinx Theatre presents an inspiring play for learning disabled and community audiences. Into My Own follows the story of Anne whose mother has to go into long-term care, leaving no plan for Anne’s future. Then Anne meets the inspirational Dilys. Dilys is full of energy and ambition - a free spirit who loves her independent life.
Can Dilys be the one to help Ann embrace a new and exciting life, achieveing things she would never have dreamed of before
The play features Sara Pickard who recently took the eponymous role in Miss Brown to You, Hijinx theatre tour of 2009. As part of an inclusive cast, along with Clêr Stephens, Jack Reynolds and Adam Timms, Sara, who has Down’s syndrome and works as Partners in Politics Officer for MENCAP Cymru, will be taking the role of Dilys in this play tackling issues around independent living for learning disabled adults.

Originally toured in 2004, this production which is directed by James Williams and Gaynor Lougher, with design by Mary Drummond and lighting by Jane Lalljeee, will tour across Wales & England from 12th May until it ends the run at Wales Millennium Centre on 31st June & 1st July as part of Hijinx Theatre’s Unity Festival (produced in partnership with MENCAP Cymru and Wales Millennium Centre).

“Never a company to shirk a difficult subject…” “Hijinx excels itself … “The Stage on Into My Own 2004
“…has that Hijinx hallmark: the lump in the throat and tear in the eye that always comes just before the final scene, even with this hardened and demanding old critic’ **** Western Mail (2004)
