How Jigsaw Theatre Company was started...
by a small group of disabled people brought together by a Director of 'Bucks Arts Association' in 1987,
They didn't want Buckinghamshire. to miss out on the disabililty arts happening in London and elsewhere. They also wanted us to talk about what arts we wanted to get involved in. At the start it looked as though there were people working in lots of different artfotms. There was a painter, a musician, a singing teacher and a Recorder player. But the minute someone mentioned acting it seemed to strike a chord with lots of us and later we agreed to talk about that some more.

The next meetings talked about the fact that we didn't want to start a drama group or anythng that could be seen as a time occupier for disabled people. What we wanted was nothing less than a Theatre Company that would produce professional quality work.
