Celebrating difference with Lung Ha Theatre Company

Catherine Wheels and Lung Ha theatre companies will produce an exciting new show touring to schools next year. Emma & Gill explores the lives of two young girls and their different experiences of school and family life. It questions what is ‘normal’ and why being different is to be celebrated.

The show features Emma McCaffrey who has performed with Lung Ha Theatre Company since 2013 and was diagnosed with autism when she was 11, and Gill Robertson the artistic director of Catherine Wheels. The show will be directed by Lung Ha Theatre Company’s artistic director, Maria Oller, and with design by Karen Tennent and sound design by Danny Krass.

This is the first time Catherine Wheels and Lung Ha theatre companies have collaborated and the first time Lung Ha Theatre Company has created a show for schools.

Emma & Gill will tour to P4-P7s in mainstream and special schools across Edinburgh and the Lothians from 18 February to 8 March 2019, to book your school please email Anna Derricourt on anna@catherinewheels.co.uk / 0131 653 5255.
