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.
One of the most life-affirming performances I've witnessed on stage
