Funny Peculiar is the latest lockdown production from Little Cog as part of their Staging Our Futures programme. The piece stars Liz Carr of Silent Witness fame, Mandy Colleran, a comedian and activist, and Bea Webster who is currently an associate of both the Royal Shakespeare Company and The Playwright's Studio of Scotland.

Zsa Zsa, Raquelle, Blanche and Cuba are in quarantine – four disabled women locked down, locked in, shut up and shouted down.

While the rest of the nation is in meltdown, it takes a lot to phase this quartet.

The new terrain is worrying and frustrating but these women are prepared - perhaps they have waited for a moment like this their whole lives.

In a sequence of four original, cross-cutting, witty and wise monologues, broadcasting from their own homes during quarantine, these women are myth-busters giving their all to expose the lie of vulnerability.

Written, directed, and edited by Little Cog's very own Vici Wreford-Sinnott, who also stars in the production, Funny Peculiar is available to watch now.
