Ellen Renton: Within Sight

She’s ‘an inspiration’ and ‘so brave’ and so tired of hearing about it. The protagonist in the one-woman poetry performance Within Sight is a disabled athlete who has narrowly missed out on making the GB Paralympics team. This is the soft-spoken and hard-hitting debut show from Ellen Renton, who draws on her own experiences of living with albinism to dismantle ableism, inspiration porn and the myth of the Paralympics.
