Instinctive, curious, bold and bouncy; Sarah is a mighty proud square peg, which wouldn’t be such a problem if the hole wasn’t so damn round.

Sarah grew up feeling different. Her childhood Dr thought it was sugar. Her current Dr thinks its ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder). Sarah still feels different, so what will a label do?

Declaration examines when we want, need or are forced to declare our differences and the faces we wear to fit in. With autobiographical comedy, storytelling and conversations with audiences, Art with Heart take you on vibrant and daring adventure.

Developed with The Lowry. Touring in association with the ADHD Foundation.
