No Magic Pill play

In Arts & Culture, Events by DB_Admin

This play is the (mostly) true story of Martin Naughton AKA Michael Collins in a wheelchair. Martin is an agitator. A disruptor. A seeker of justice and planter of (truth) bombs. But will his anarchic quest for equality be derailed by dreams of love and new horizons? Based on the real life of Martin Naughton and his campaign for independence for disabled people in Ireland, No Magic Pill, written by Christian O’Reilly and directed by Raymond Keane, is a joyful, shameless, no-holds-barred story of one man’s fight for justice and love.
