Abstract:

This chapter brings together the reflective voices of three people who worked together for a period of eight months within the context of a newly formed drama group in South East London. The group was self-initiated, by members of a (leisure) service-provider for young people and adults with learning disabilities, primarily run by a committee consisting of parents of the young people and adults with learning disabilities. The drama group consisted of twelve people between fifteen and thirty years of age (approximately). Following an interview with the groups' key worker, notably, without the actual members being present, I was invited to work with the group.
