Ten years (well, now twelve…) after losing most of his sight, 'deliciously talented' (Guardian) Tom looks back, sees the funny side and wonders what might've been. But would Tom from 2020 (or 2022!) swap places with fantasy Tom with 20:20 vision? Perth Fringe World Weekly Comedy Award Winner 2020. New Zealand Fringe complete sell-out 2020! 'Insightful, hilarious... expertly crafted' ***** (Tulpa). 'Inventive and very enjoyable' **** (Mirror). 'A wonderful narrator' (Times). **** (Edinburgh Festivals Magazine).

A poignant and very funny show from Tom Skelton, about coming to terms with a new reality. Highly recommended!

"Might have been" fantasies are part of being human - Tom's show hits at both a personal and a universal level. He addresses his sight loss with honesty, naturalness and great humour - it's a great show - and an important one to see. And we loved it!

Fantastic show. Seen Tom in other shows and he is a fabulous performer. First time seeing his own show and not disappointed. Loads of humour but also a poignant personal story. As someone who has also had sight loss it particularly resonated with me, but my (perfectly visioned) friend also loved it!
