Still reeling from the news that she missed out on making the GB Paralympics team, a young athlete goes out for a run to clear her head. She contemplates what the future holds for her in a society so hostile towards the disabled, now that she’s failed to live up to its incessant expectation of being an inspiration.

Within Sight is poet Ellen Renton’s debut solo show. Based on her experience of living with albinism, Renton’s soft-spoken but hard hitting poetry dismantles ableism, inspiration porn, and the myth of the Paralympics.
