Created and produced by stroke survivor, Ade Djajamihardja, for Australia’s disability-led production company, A2K Media. The Wheelhouse represents A2K Media’s primary mission to bring an authentic representation of disability and diversity to their stories, be they through screen, stage or the written form, which in this case is all three!
The Wheelhouse will be the first Melbourne International Comedy Festival show Ade has ever produced, co-written and starred in. As a recipient of the Theatre Network Australia 2020 Victorian Independent Producer’s Initiative, Ade brings his lived experience along with his well-honed comedy chops. Working with experienced comedy legends and emerging talent, this show celebrates the punchline while championing inclusion.
