“The people you see every day have different stories than yours. Are We Clear? Is a devised piece created by UVic theatre students striving to uncover the world of invisible disabilities. The Victoria community has been integral in our devising process, sharing their experiences with us.

When someone says they are fine, are they really fine? Or are they struggling? Just because you cannot see it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. Invisible, or hidden, disabilities are more common than you think, and should be talked about – openly. Come together with us to reevaluate what is to be “normal.””
