    About

    Co-created with Charlene Salter, Shaun Dunne, and Marmelo

    Charlene has done something terrible.
    Lots of people saw her, and they’re not happy.

    Using new mobile app technology, Access All Areas will take you on a GPS-guided walk through the streets of Bristol to discover what happened to Charlene.

    What would you do if you thought you saw a crime? Would you get involved? Would you tell the police? Would you walk away? What if your phone could tell you exactly how to handle it?

    Commissioned by The Lowry and touring nationally through local streets, this new interactive audio production explores the ableism of language, sensory overload and the feeling of being judged as a learning disabled person.

    Bring your wits, and get a taste of how it feels to be Charlene on the streets.

    About the experience

    • The Interrogation takes place through an app and by walking around outdoors. You will be given a handset and headphones to access and follow the experience – you will not need to use your own phone.
    • The experience is self-led. There are no stewards. You’ll need to follow a simple map and directions.
    • The route is 2km, is wheelchair accessible and includes places to sit if needed.
    • The app can also be used without following the full route if preferred.

    • “Leading the way for diversity in the arts”

      The Evening Standard on Access All Areas
    • “One of the most important pieces of theatre I have seen in recent years... Access All Areas have released a creative call to arms”

    • “Proudly and defiantly other… The actor’s loud, proud and shameless commitment to presenting the stigma, trauma and pain they are, have been, and will continue to be subjected to is a gesture of empowerment; empowering not just for the actors, but for all those living with disabilities”
