3 members from FlawBored are gathered around a large armchair. Standing behind with her hand on the chair is Chloe, a white woman with blonde hair wearing a blue shirt. Next to her is Aarian, a Middle Eastern man with black hair who is seated on a stool behind the chair, his trainers poking out from the side. Sitting in the chair is Sam, a white man wearing a black suit. Sam sits slumped in the chair with his legs dangling over one of the armrests. The armchair is sitting inside a large, open metal bear trap – the black blades around the edge of the bear trap pick up the light. A large armchair is inside a large, open metal bear trap.

Part of A Bit of A Do Festival

Usually disabled people just want to do the right thing. But what if they don’t? 

What if they were out to make as much money as possible from the guilt of non-disabled, anxious people (like you)?

Hot off the back of their smash-hit run at Edinburgh Fringe Festival, multi-award winning. disability-led theatre company FlawBored present It’s a Motherf**king Pleasure; ‘a smart, scathing satire’ on the monetisation of identity politics that spares no-one.


‘Stunningly inventive satire’

About the artists

FlawBored is a multi award winning disability led Theatre Company, co-founded  by Samuel Brewer, Aarian Mehrabani and Chloe Palmer. They create meta theatrical work with dark irreverence which aims to address complex and uncomfortable issues surrounding identity which no one has the answers to.

Their shows all feature integrated, creative access throughout and seek to create an environment where  all audiences, regardless of impairments and disabilities, are able to access the same show.  

A FlawBored show is cheeky, chaotic and most importantly is not disability ‘trauma-porn’ or ‘pity-porn.’
