Fishamble is bringing their Edinburgh award-winning play The Wheelchair on My Face to the Nenagh Arts Centre on Saturday, September 29th.
This comedy tells the story of how a young woman girl hilariously navigates the choppy waters of short-sightedness: “I got my first pair of glasses when I was seven. A nurse came to the school and tested everyone’s eyes.
“And so it was discovered why I’d thrown bread to the floating crisp packets in our local pond and walked into lamp posts and said, ‘excuse me’. Until that day the world was a swirl of moving coloured blobs. I thought it was the same for everyone. How wrong I was”.
This delightful story of a myopic seven-year-old is brought to you by actor and comedian Sonya Kelly (RTE’s ‘The Savage Eye’).
The Wheelchair on my Face won an Edinburgh Fringe Festival award for writing for Sonya Kelly.
The play begins at 8pm on Saturday, September 29th. Admission is E15 and tickets can be booked online from www.nenagharts.com or by calling the box office on 067 34400.
