Event Details

An invigorating one-woman (plus!) ride into a contemporary life on wheels.

Meet Queen Esme of Collingwood; the eternal Aussie optimist living high in a high rise. Share in the daily ritual of Kerry the Coffee Addict. And then there’s Kate’s alter ego…

Starring Kate Hood, That’s Why the Lady Needs a Ramp is a one-woman (plus her onstage buddy) production proudly presented by Disability-Led theatre company, Raspberry Ripple. Auslan interpreted, it also features audio description included in the script, circus designed for everybody, a set with wheelchair access in mind and the lighting and sound is accessible for Neuro-diverse or Autistic people.
Bringing to life an array of familiar and quirky characters, That’s Why The Lady Needs a Ramp will delight and discombobulate, while paying tribute to the late great wheelchair-using comedienne, Stella Young.
Playing for a limited season at Melbourne’s Chapel Off Chapel this new Australian work is a deeply personal, very funny, and surprisingly universal show.
Performed by Kate Hood, Josie Wardrope, Sam Gaskin, Sophie Mcrae and Sam Aldham
18 – 20 August, 2022
Thurs - Fri 7:30pm, Sat 2pm
