We know you want to look, to stare even. It’s OK. You’re allowed…

If These Spams Could Speak is an outstanding solo performance based on a collection of funny, sad, touching and surprising stories about disabled people and their bodies.  

Coming to the Dublin Theatre Festival this September in association with Arts and Disability Ireland and British Council Ireland. 

Created and performed by Robert Softley, it exposes a truth behind bodies that differ from the norm. His own narrative – told with wry humour, charm and sincerity – is woven through with video interviews and monologue in an engaging and highly charismatic way. It is both a challenge to society’s perceptions and desire for classifications, and a celebration of being alive.

A sell-out hit at festivals and events across the UK, If These Spasms Could Speak is a tender and uplifting theatre experience.
