The playwright, Jeff Page, says ...
"Having worked in the charity sector for many years, I wanted to provoke debate on the future of charities working with disabled people and the reasons they still exist.
Why should people need to be 'donated to' in the modern world?"
Note: there are 2 press performances for this show on 17 and 18 March 2020.
ActDrop reviewed a previous production by the same writer/ director team - Checkpoint Chana - in March 2018.
Karen Keane and Paulette Campbell have a day to raise funds to keep the charity they founded alive.
The clock is ticking as they desperately fight a hostile red-top press and decide to break the law to survive, in order to appeal for a cash injection that could save their charity.
Examining contemporary attitudes towards disability and the voluntary sector, Charity Case reunites playwright Jeff Page with director Manuel Bau, after their successful collaboration on Checkpoint Chana at the Finborough Theatre, which starred Bafta nominated actress Geraldine Somerville.
