Step Inside MS

What is it like to be diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis?

Gillian Shirriffs put out a call for letters via email, facebook and twitter and publicised by the MS Society of Scotland, the MS Society of the UK and her own friends and family. Within weeks the reponse was better than she had ever hoped for.

Gillian has now produced this exhibition based on her soon to be published book of the letters "Step Inside".

Most people know someone, perhaps even love someone, with MS, but may not feel comfortable asking about it for fear of causing upset or offence.

Hopefully, by reading these letters, such individuals will experience something of what it feels like to be diagnosed with MS.

Head in the Clouds

IpdipTheatre

Interactive Theatre for 0 – 4 years and Family (35min)

Cirrus the dog has a serious job: he has to keep watch on the sheep. What to do when they lose themselves, drifting amongst the dancing clouds? How can he help these woolly-headed dreamers get back down to earth?

Designed for 0-4 year olds and their families to enjoy together, this is theatre that surrounds with sound, touch and visual treats. Guided by the performers, all audience members are invited to help create the atmosphere and landscape of the story. Ipdip have previously been seen delighting audiences around Scotland and Cumbria, including a sell-out run at the 2013 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Come and play!

The sheep look down, the sheep look round, one sheep looks up and sees the clouds…

“A great way to introduce wee ones to theatre”
“Great - three year old and three month old enjoyed it”
“A beautiful, whimsical story. A lovely, tactile show for little folk”
