Simon Laherty

Ladies and Gentleman my name is Simon Maurice Laherty. I have been with the acting ensemble since 2003. We’re all actors and we all can act. Lucky, I’m no good at office work. Meetings can get boring but they have to get done. The Artistic Director is hard. He’s hard on the actors. The best thing that ever happened to me in my life was my grandfather giving me his medals when I turned 21.

My name is Sarah Mainwaring and I have been working with Back to Back since 2006. Being part of the ensemble has been rewarding. Their artistic standard and depth of comprehension is impressive and that empowers me to do great work.

Hello audience, I’m Scott Price and a member of the ensemble. I’ve been working here since 2007.

In some countries they call people with disabilities children. Maybe that’s just lost in translation, a cultural thing. Sometimes people say and name things differently in different cultures. So we shouldn’t be too offended by that.

My motto is to look for opportunities. I have a funny and intriguing relationship with Back to Back. It’s exhilarating. Some of the work has been provocative, controversial and rebellious; it’s in your face.

I’ve enjoyed working in a large family. We get a laugh and a cry and we make shows from our hearts and minds. And my hashtag is #autismpride

When I was younger I was always looking for a buzz, something to keep me high and fast.

Now I see myself like a bowl of jelly. Jelly’s a bit wobbly and I’m a bit like that. I might have lost the butchness about myself, the hormones might have gone to bed or something.

My biggest goal is to one day meet Melissa Etheridge and have her sing to me, maybe even onstage.

One thing I really love about myself is the way I speak to people.

I’ve been here since 2008. My main purpose is to make shows and tour them around the world. My best achievement is expanding my creativity. I can’t think of anything else. My motto is: if there is a will there’s a way, and there is always a way.
