My Feral Heart
What better way to celebrate ‘World Downs Syndrome’ day than by treating yourself with a trip to see ‘My Feral Heart’.
I met the star of this film on my very first visit to 'Mushroom Theatre Company' at its previous home on Lubbards Farm. Even then, Stephen shone as I chatted to the group that were rehearsing a drama about the consequences of dropping litter.
Since then I have met him a few times, one of the most memorable was on the day we were helping with the move of MTC into their new home at Brook Road. I sat down exhausted but very happy that the move was completed and watched Stephen doing some stretching exercises. I flippantly said: “Oh, I wish that I could do that”, Stephen’s reply was: “You can do anything if you try!”
This really sums up this remarkable young man and hasn’t he proved that he was right?
When I saw ‘My Feral Heart’ at ‘The East London Film Festival’ I was in awe at the beauty and honesty of this film and I got a hug from the star after the show!
If you get a chance to see ‘My Feral Heart’ I absolutely recommend it, you won’t be disappointed.
