Description: Meet Fanny Fust – an heiress with severe learning disabilities living in Bristol in 1787. Her mother wants her to be independent. Can she trust Fanny’s school friends? Who is the charming Henry Bowerman? Citizens of Frome, you must decide whether or not Fanny is capable of informed consent. Using records from the law courts, Openstorytellers, an award winning charity for people with learning disabilities, tell Fanny’s story through drama, dance and song. The performance is followed by a Q and A session focusing on the relevance of Fanny’s experience to the lives of disabled people today.
