Looking for a good night out? Don’t miss My
Left Right Foot – The Musical at Dundee Rep Theatre, the outrageous new show on tour after sell out success at the 2018 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Packed full of riotously funny songs and hilarious dance routines, this completely inclusive musical puts disability centre stage. It’s been making audience members snort with laughter on tour in Japan and Brighton, and you can catch it at Dundee Rep Theatre from 21st to 25th May.
What’s it about?
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!
But 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.
Is it accessible?
