My Left / Right Foot - the Musical

“Fight for a ticket, it’s a must see show”

– British Theatre Guide

Birds of Paradise and National Theatre of Scotland present this hilarious new musical on tour after sell out success at the 2018 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

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.

Winner of the Scotsman Fringe First and Herald Angel Awards. Nominated for six Critics’ Awards for Theatre in Scotland.

Written and Directed by Robert Softley Gale. Music and lyrics by Richard Thomas (Jerry Springer – The Opera) and Scott Gilmour and Claire McKenzie (The Snow Queen).
