The Millennium Forum’s resident award-winning theatre company for adults with learning disabilities, Stage Beyond, will present ‘The Great Dictator’ on Wednesday, June 15th 2022.
Europe, 1941. Pandora is at war and people are disappearing, people who are different. Dictator Heidi has a doppelganger – Brian, a decorator. When Brian’s sister Hanna goes missing, Brian discovers a terrible secret at his local hospital. In a bizarre case of mistaken identity, fate offers Brian the chance to change history….
Drawing on recent historical episodes, ‘The Great Dictator’ asks is how we treat the vulnerable a measure of our humanity? Based on Charlie Chaplin’s masterpiece of the same name, Stage Beyond interrogates what happens when society treats disability like a crime and people with disabilities like criminals.
