joey is a high octane monologue about multiple possibilities for survival; they've travelled far and wide, joeys travelling still.'The similarities to now are searing. The UK has a hard-right government. There are savage cuts in welfare and wages against a backdrop of race hate, riots, hunger strikes and 'punk' - the voiceless youths' call to arms to resist suppression. Joey is the story of three teenagers growing up in care.Towards the end of their childhood, disabled author Joey Deacon goes on BBC TV's Blue Peter and overnight 'joey' becomes a term of abuse in schoolyards across the country.' - Disability Arts Online
