Birds of Paradise Theatre Company and National Theatre of Scotland, book by Robert Softley Gale, music and lyrics by Scott Gilmour and Claire McKenzie, additional Songs by Richard Thomas and Robert Softley Gale

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

Note: British Sign Language, captioning, audio description are embedded within the show – hearing loop provided for all performances. Warning: Strong Language
