    Sisterhood, womanhood, Down syndrome and one extraordinary bond.

    Sophie is a one-woman autobiographical play telling the story of Emily and her sister Sophie.

    Sophie explores how the sisters - only two years apart – shared the same upbringing, raised by their single mother in Hull, but had very different journeys through life and womanhood.

    The story begins at Sophie’s 30th birthday party and then takes you back on an incredible journey through the twists and turns of their sisterhood.
    Sophie is a celebration - come and celebrate with us!


    Sophie by Emily Curtis
