On Saturday 3 November at 8pm, Solstice Arts Centre hosts Sonya Kelly and Fishamble: The New Play Company with their award-winning play 'The Wheelchair on My Face'.
Described as 'Little Miss Sunshine meets My Left Foot', actor and comedian Sonya Kelly (Savage Eye) tells the story of a myopic seven-year-old. Part memoir, part theatre and part stand-up comedy, this hilarious and poignant piece will have adults and children in stitches! With a tight script and engaging performance from Kelly, the audience are guaranteed a delightful hour full of wit and the odd pull at the heartstrings! This play was winner of the Edinburgh Fringe First Award 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'.'
'The Wheelchair on My Face' was 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.
