THE AWARD-WINNING ‘The Wheelchair on My Face’ comes to the Watergate Theatre for one night only on October 5.

Fishamble: The New Play Company presents ‘The Wheelchair on My Face: A look back at a myopic childhood’ which has been described as part memoir, part theatre and part stand-up comedy’. The story tells of a myopic seven year old who is brought to life by actor and comedian, Sonya Kelly.

‘The Wheelchair on My Face’ has been greatly received at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival winning The Scotsman Fringe First Award. Fishamble are delighted that this funny, poignant show, has been recognized by the judges of this internationally renowned award. Fishamble is for the second year in a row bringing home the coveted Fringe First from Edinburgh following their win last year for ‘Silent’ by Pat Kinevane.

Tickets are priced at €12.50 and €10 and are available from the Watergate Theatre box office (056) 77 61674 or online on www.watergatetheatre.com
