Set in the 1970’s this brand new show is about an intelligent, happy little girl Belinda, who loves life, her two brothers and stealing The Priest’s biscuits with her best friend Angela. But her brothers are not walking properly and when she opens ‘the drawer she must never open’ her world is cataclysmically blown apart…..
‘She Wins All The Races’ is a dynamic, fun, heartening one-woman show about a little girl growing up with the certainty of loss. It is a celebration of the courage and resilience of the human spirit, with quirky, physical storytelling and a little bit of Abba!
Performed by Shelley O’Brien and based on the actress’s real life story of growing up with her two brothers who were born with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
For ages 13+
“Clearly an accomplished actress with lashings of charisma to boot and a powerful tale to tell. A play with a heart that beats strongly and within it one of the saddest, most touching scenes I have ever seen on stage.” Hexham Courant
