About FlawBored:
FlawBored is a multi award winning disability led Theatre Company, co-founded by Samuel Brewer, Aarian Mehrabani and Chloe Palmer. They create meta theatrical work with dark irreverence which aims to address complex and uncomfortable issues surrounding identity which no one has the answers to.

Their shows all feature integrated, creative access throughout and seek to create an environment where all audiences, regardless of impairments and disabilities, are able to access the same show.

A FlawBored show is cheeky, chaotic and most importantly is not disability ‘trauma-porn’ or ‘pity-porn.’
