Sophie, is an autobiographical, one-woman show that transports its audience back to the 90s as we watch Emily navigate her way through womanhood and sisterhood with Sophie, who lives with Down syndrome. As Emily begins consuming plenty of cheap booze, snogging boys, and dancing to some great girl bangers, Sophie gradually becomes excluded from the independent life that Emily is freely able to enjoy. The sisters then begin to grow further apart when Emily’s ignorance is fuelled by the discriminative views of her peers in high school. Written and performed by sisters and founders of Down The Lens, Sophie & Emily. The girls want to show everyone what life can be like living with that extra sparkly chromosome – Down syndrome. “SASSY, SHARP, AND FULL OF SPARKLE. THE SISTERS ARE DYNAMIC AND MAGIC TO WATCH" Sophie and Emily want to challenge people's perceptions about Down syndrome and create a social, cultural, medical, and educational impact through live and digital storytelling, in a sexy, sassy and sparkly way.
