The Wheelchair on My Face

The Wheelchair on My Face – a look back at a myopic childhood. Little Miss Sunshine meets My Left Foot. ‘Part memoir, part theatre and part stand-up comedy’ (Irish Independent), The Wheelchair on My Face is a delightful story of a myopic seven year old by actor and comedian, Sonya Kelly (The Savage Eye). Described as Little Miss Sunshine meets My Left Foot, it plays in the Town Hall Theatre on Wednday,  3rd October 8pm.. ‘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 lampposts 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.’. ‘hilarious, will please viewers of all lens-prescriptions and none.’ Irish Theatre Magazine ‘delightfully whacky.. hilarious.. tight script and engaging performance.. terrific’ Irish Times ‘wonderfully fresh script..highly endearing’ The Sunday Business Post ‘an absolute delight of a show’ The Irish Mail on Sunday ‘a delightful hour, full of wit and keen observation along with the odd pull at the heartstrings’ Sunday Independent ‘beautifully evocative..fabulous’ RTÉ Arena. Written and performed by Sonya Kelly. Directed by Gina Moxley. Produced by Marketa Dowling. Booking is now open at the Town Hall Box Office, by phone at 091 569777 or on the web at
