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 don’t have 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. Throw in a love triangle and throw out political correctness, all the drama happens behind the curtains.
Written and Directed by Robert Softley Gale, co-director of Wendy Hoose and creator of If These Spasms Could Speak and Blanche & Butch. With music and lyrics by award-winning partnership Scott Gilmour and Claire McKenzie (The Snow Queen) and Richard Thomas(Jerry Springer – The Opera).
