Description Gary and Steve are the kind of men who normally escape notice. But here they play an inadvertent but pivotal role in the night of two ambitious executvies they've arranged to meet for a transaction.
Back to Back Theatre is driven by an ensemble of five actors considered to have intellectual disabilites. Here, they use their award-winning ability to explore how respect is witheld from outsiders - the disabled or unemployed - who society deems "unproductive".
