My Left / Right Foot – The Musical

18:10, 01 - 27 Aug

The local am-dram society is under pressure to comply with the equalities agenda. They come up with a cunning plan to create a gripping show starring 'the disabled'. What could be better than the Oscar-winning ‘My Left Foot’? The only snag is they’re having real trouble finding any disabled actors – but that never stopped Daniel Day-Lewis!

In the world of amateur theatre, winning the one-act festival isn’t a matter of life and death - it’s much more important. Enthusiastic Amy thinks she can save the day but is grumpy Chris up for the challenge? Gillian has been given the role of Movement Director but she’s only got Grade Three Modern and Tap, and Grant - well Grant’s just too busy fancying himself. Throw in a few love triangles and throw out political correctness, all the drama happens behind the curtains.

From Robert Softley Gale, co-director of Wendy Hoose and creator of If These Spasms Could Speak and Blanche & Butch. Original music by award-winning partnership Scott Gilmour and Claire McKenzie with additional songs by Richard Thomas (Jerry Springer – The Opera). Birds of Paradise and National Theatre of Scotland present this hilarious new musical, celebrating BOP's 25th anniversary.

All performances of My Left Right Foot offer integrated BSL, audio description, loop and captioning and strong humour!

Relaxed Performance on 19 August.
