Step into Rachel’s world as this ★★★★★ (Guardian) show returns following a sold-out run. Discover how a learning disabled artist has the power to lead the creation of her ‘Perfect Show’.

Rachel is a theatre-loving, enigmatic 33 year-old who loves Kylie Minogue, heckling from the front row and seeing people falling over. She is a learning disabled care-home resident, and sister to Flo, Zoo Co’s Artistic Director.

Sitting on-stage on a throne with her custom-built tech desk, Rachel takes charge as the director of every unique performance in real-time. A touch of a button can trigger live music, theatrical scenes and dynamic choreography, brought to life instantly by performers.

Perfect Show for Rachel was developed with Rachel, to create a show on her own terms. It explores who defines artistic taste, and questions who that currently excludes. Created by Zoo Co Theatre, a multi award-winning company creating theatre that loudly champions access, with Improbable, a pioneering company of improvisers and theatre-makers.
