Charlene has done something terrible.
Lots of people saw her, and they’re not happy.

What would you do if you thought you saw a crime? Would you get involved? Would you tell the police? Would you walk away? What if your phone could tell you exactly how to handle it?

Commissioned by The Lowry and touring nationally through local streets, this new interactive audio production lets you question the causes of criminality, the ableism of language, and the feeling of being judged as a learning disabled person.

Bring your smartphone, and your wits, and get a taste of how it feels to be Charlene on the streets.
