Purple Poncho Players in Action

Watch our video to see how their sketches show powerful personal stories of the barriers disabled people face - they show disabled people's experiences of welfare reform, isolation, hate crime and prejudice, as well as the difference it can make having the right support, social connections, choice and control in our lives.

Members Story
