The Wheelchair on My Face by Sonya Kelly

Fishamble: The New Play Company presents The Wheelchair on My Face a look back at a myopic childhood: Little Miss Sunshine meets My Left Foot!

‘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.’

‘Part memoir, part theatre and part stand-up comedy’ (Irish Independent), this delightful story of a myopic seven year old is brought to you by actor and comedian, Sonya Kelly (The Savage Eye). Developed as part of Show in a Bag, an artist development initiative of Dublin Fringe Festival, Fishamble: The New Play Company and Irish Theatre Institute to resource theatre makers and actors.
