The Glens Centre Manorhamilton plays host to an award winning play this Sunday, March 24 when Fishamble The New Play Company presents ‘The Wheelchair on My Face.’
Described as a look back at a myopic childhood, the play is written and performed by Sonya Kelly and directed by Gina Moxley and it has been compared to Little Miss Sunshine meets My Left Foot!
The production won the Fringe First Award at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2012.
“I got my first pair of glasses when I was seven. A nurse came to the school and tested everyone’s eyes. And so it was discovered why I’d thrown bread to the floating crisp packets in our local pond and walked into lamp posts and said, ’excuse me’. Until that day the world was a swirl of moving coloured blobs. I thought it was the same for everyone. How wrong I was.”
Part memoir, part theatre and part stand-up comedy, this delightful story of a myopic seven year old is brought to you by actor and comedian, Sonya Kelly (The Savage Eye).
Developed as part of Show in a Bag, an artist development initiative of Dublin Fringe Festival, Fishamble: The New Play Company and Irish Theatre Institute to resource theatre makers and actors.
The show starts at 8.30pm. Bookings on 071 9855833.
