“We need to start at the start.  

Yes, yes, we do or the Neurotypicals will be confused”  

There was something off about the new guy. But now he’s dead, and the sirens are fast approaching.  

Who to trust – what was it he told you that time on the pedalo?   

You need to get your story straight; because CCTV and number plates.   

Because everyone’s perspective is different, and only certain perspectives count.   

You need an empty stage, a mic, a London bus.  

You need a captive audience, roller skates, and a man 25 to 45 who will do as he’s told.  

Pressure’s on. Engine’s running.”  

About the production

Access All Areas’ first co-production with the Royal Court Theatre has been co-created with eight Access All Areas associate artists.

7 friends are in the frame for murder and the police are closing in. They must clear their name and in order to do so, they’ve enlisted the most unlikely of help. As the pressure mounts, friends become suspects and the experience changes them all.

This funny, dark whodunnit will take you on an unexpected journey; with jokes, sex, songs, crimes, plot twists and a comeuppance.

All eight associate artists also perform in the piece. They’ll be taking over the Royal Court’s famous downstairs stage, in a landmark moment for learning disabled and autistic led theatre.  

All performances of Imposter 22 will be relaxed. You can read more about this, and other access tools used during performances here.

Do you want to see how we made Imposter 22 more accessible for our audiences and artists? Check out some of Luke’s top tips for venue access.

Our team worked with all departments at The Royal Court to help make the venue more accessible for learning disabled and autistic audiences, artists, and staff.

This was part of our “Culture Shift” package that we run for arts organisations across the UK.
