''I was as enchanted as the kids, and it was wonderful to see the enchantment reflected in adult and child alike, and for it to be shared in such a way.''
Tony McBride, Artistic Director & Playwright
''It was a very enjoyable performance! The scenery was brilliant and the music went so well with the story!''

Walking on Water draws from the experiences of individuals with learning disabilities to tell universal stories; stories of anger, hurt, joy and of a yearning to escape. Plunge into a fluid, sensual world created by a vibrant fusion of movement, music, word and design. Explore the space you have and the space you want.
Frequently funny, occasionally bizarre and always moving, this is theatre which reflects the imaginative richness of the experience of being learning disabled without denying its challenges.
