Who Do You Think You Are?

A short film commission for DaDa (Disability Arts Disability and Deaf Arts Organisation) as part of their DaDaVisions programme produced in November 2009.

This short film was written and acted by trio So Many Excuses; Mandy Colleran, Mandy Redvers-Rowe and Ali Briggs (who some may recognise as Freda in Coronation Street). The film is a take on the classic Frost Report sketch from the 1960s featuring the Two Ronnies and John Cleese; then a comment upon the British class system but now playfully adapted to explore the stereotypes and labels that the disabled place upon each other, Who Do You Think You Are?

Executive Producers Bren O’Callaghan and Ruth Gould (DaDa). Supported by Liverpool City Council, Phil & Alexis Redmond and Northwest Vision & Media.
