Queensland Premiere


Kathryn Hall

Bunker down with Kathryn Hall in this hilariously honest take on the ups and downs of finding adulthood in a youth shelter while learning to manage cerebral palsy.  

From learning how to cook from teenagers, while studying in an impossibly inaccessible school system, to navigating a merry-go-round of therapists and doctors, Kathryn’s cheekiness and vulnerability will have you cry-laughing!  

Blending comedy, drama, puppetry and one very special quilt. Sheltered is an autobiographical rollercoaster that playfully challenges perceptions of disability through the themes of housing and homelessness, the school system and young adulthood. This powerful new South Australian work envisions an alternative to the old frameworks of isolation and segregation by finding a new home for people with disability in a more inclusive society.

Kathryn Hall (she/her) 

Kathryn Hall is an Adelaide-based performer and writer. She makes theatre that explores her lived experiences with a disability in an “infectiously bubbly” way (Samela Harris, Barefoot Review).  

Her most recent credit is “National Assistance Agency” as part of No Strings Attached Theatre of Disability Amplify (December 2022) at State Opera Studio of South Australia.  Kathryn debuted her first solo work “Sheltered” at The Parks Theatre in the Adelaide Fringe 2022. This was made possible by a Quick Response Grant from the Adelaide Fringe Artist Fund. Since that first season Kathryn has continued to develop “Sheltered” thanks to rants from Arts SA’s Richard Llewellyn Disability Arts Grant and Adelaide Fringe Artist Fund.   

When not working on her own artistic endeavours, Kathryn is employed at No Strings as an Artistic Associate where she is developing “My Stories” working with disabled actors to share their own personal stories and film them.
