    30-May-2013 Report

    Play runs 3-22nd June
    "This is an intensely dramatic and moving true story of a mother’s tireless battles and inspiring triumphs in her struggle for her disabled son’s rights. Starting with a difficult conception and a terrifying delivery with unsympathetic midwives on hand, the mother describes how 'her backbone lost its steel' when the doctor predicts that this gurgling, farting, smiling baby would not grow up to walk, talk, read or write. That is only the beginning... when Nihal's mother discovers he has a sensitive and intelligent personality trapped inside his body, she does everything in her power to set it free but mostly she finds herself up against a brick wall. Even in schools where the teachers should have known better!
