One-man comedy-drama about two twins growing up with cerebral palsy: Bec (a wheelchair user) and Jack (who walks with a limp). Each twin had a very different experience navigating life. 

Join Jack as he steps back in time, reliving squabbles with his old womb-mate Bec; whilst battling against societal attitudes and a troublesome tattie: Darth Tater. 

In this true tale of twins growing up, their unique bond is tested as they steer through the trials and tribulations of childhood and school – honking at bullies and overthrowing low expectations. 

An inspiring* solo show with sketch and spoken word, that celebrates disability, diversity and questions Eddie Redmayne’s career choices. *Inspiration not guaranteed 

“a memorably angry and loving call for more understanding of the nuances of disability, particularly from the school system that came close to failing Bec completely; all articulated with a charm, humour and light-touch use of film and visual images that mark Hunter’s arrival as a major presence in Scottish theatre.” (Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman)
