IncludED the Stageplay
Posted by CHARTS
IncludED follows the story of two mothers fighting for their children, who have learning disabilities, to have the same opportunities at school as other young people. It follows the two very different women’s experiences as their lives become intertwined through their tireless campaigning.

IncludED is produced by the charity Creative Change Collective and brings together professionals from the creative industries to affect positive change.
IncludED, which is supported by the charity ENABLE Scotland, will launch at Beacon Arts Centre in Greenock on October 12 and 13. It will then visit venues in Helensburgh, Campbeltown, Dunoon, Oban and Glasgow, with the possibility of a wider Scottish tour.
Funding has been provided by the Argyll and Bute Third Sector Interface to support members of Jean’s Bothy community hub in Helensburgh, which focuses on mental health and wellbeing.
The play, which stars Rachel Ogilvy and Caroline Guthrie, is written by Creative Change Collective project director Mark MacNicol and directed by Libby McArthur.
Its name comes from the ‘IncludED in the Main’ campaign launched by ENABLE Scotland, which lists 22 key recommendations for schools, the Scottish Government, councils and Education Scotland to make to increase inclusion for pupils with learning disabilities.
