No Magic Pill

The Black Box

From award-winning writer Christian O'Reilly (Sanctuary, The Good Father, Inside I’m Dancing), comes a ground-breaking new play inspired by the life of Spiddal-born Martin Naughton.

 No Magic Pill

This is the heartfelt, hilarious, stereotype-shattering story of one man's anarchic quest for both justice and love.

Martin is an agitator. A disruptor. He's basically Michael Collins in a wheelchair. But what happens when your ‘special needs’ are love and anarchy, and will his fight for equality be derailed by dreams of lifelong love and distant shores?

Duration: 80 minutes, no interval
Age Guidance: 12+ (strong language)
Post-Show Talk: Members of the cast and playwright, Christian O’Reilly, in conversation after the performance on Thursday 29 Sept
