Thalidomide!! A Musical
Mat Fraser and Anna Winslet star in this dark and shockingly funny musical. With the Thalidomide drug scandal of the 1960’s as its backdrop, the show has at its heart a journey of self-discovery and true love.
Thrills! Pills! Headaches! A PC-free musical with a short-armed punch.
Thalidomide!! A Musical is an irreverent roller-coaster ride through musical pastiche: country and western, ska, tango, ballad and tap.
Mat Fraser is one of the UK’s best-known disabled artists. He is a writer, musician, tv presenter and martial arts expert. He is also the co-presenter of the outrageous Ouch! podcast for the BBC.
Containing some strong language, Thalidomide!! A Musical is not recommended for children under 14.
