Description

Join award-nominated comedian and one-eyed legend Georgie Morrell as she explores disability and celebrity. Ever wanted to be an icon and have everyone look up to you? Georgie didn't, but she is now and doesn't remember agreeing to this. Or did she? Has she sacrificed who she is to be the poster girl of disability? As seen and heard on BBC Two, BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio 5 Live. Commissioned by New Theatre Wolsey (Ipswich). 'Riotous and side-splittingly funny, sets disability taboos alight' (DisabilityArts.online). 'Ballsy and uncompromising' ****½ (ReviewsHub.com). 'Burns with fire and light' (WhatsOnStage.com).
