Local amdram society is under pressure to comply with the equalities agenda. They come up with a cunning plan; create a gripping show starring ‘the disabled’. What could be better than the Oscar-winning My Left Foot? The only snag is they can’t find any disabled actors – but that never stopped Daniel Day-Lewis! Birds of Paradise and National Theatre of Scotland present this hilarious new musical.
**** “Outrageously funny…rude, ribald and hilariously off-colour” The Guardian on Wendy Hoose
