My Left / Right Foot – The Musical

Assembly Roxy

Audio described performance dates

Suitability: 16+ (Guideline)
BSL interpreted by Natalie MacDonald
Local am-dram society is under pressure to comply with the equalities agenda. They come up with a cunning plan; create a gripping show starring 'the disabled'. What could be better than the Oscar-winning My Left Foot? The only snag is they can't find any disabled actors – but that never stopped Daniel Day-Lewis! Original music by award-winning partnership Scott Gilmour and Claire McKenzie with additional songs by Richard Thomas ('Jerry Springer – The Opera'). Birds of Paradise and National Theatre of Scotland present this hilarious new musical, celebrating BOP's 25th anniversary. www.madeinscotlandshowcase.com

Ulster American

Traverse Theatre

Audio described performance dates

Suitability: 18+ (Guideline)
Audio described by John Cummings. BSL interpreted by Nicolle Murdoch.
Jay is the Oscar-winning actor taking the lead in a play that connects with his Irish roots. Leigh is the English director who will do anything to get noticed. And Ruth is the Northern Irish playwright whose voice must be heard. The stage is set for great success but when the three meet, a line is crossed, and the heated discussion quickly escalates to violence. Exploring abuses of power, the confusion of cultural identity and the silencing of the female voice, Ulster American by David Ireland (Cyprus Avenue) is confrontational and brutally funny – not for the faint-hearted.

Suitability: 14+ (Guideline)
Audio described by Jenny Wilson. BSL interpreted by Shaurna Dickson.
In 1992 a schoolgirl from Fife was catapulted to a rock star life in an indie band. Touring with Radiohead, partying with Blur, she was living the dream. Until she wasn’t. Based on her teenage diaries, this is the true story of Cora Bissett’s rollercoaster journey from the girl she was to the woman she wanted to be. Performing with a live band, directed by Orla O’Loughlin, Cora celebrates life’s euphoric highs and epic shitstorms, asking what wisdom we should pass to the next generation and which glorious mistakes we should let them make. www.madeinscotlandshowcase.com
