The Super Special Disability Roadshow by Birds of Paradise Theatre Company

How to define diverse abilities and change public attitudes while bridging the generation gap, time and space?

Established 30 years ago, Birds of Paradise was Scotland’s first touring theatre company to employ disabled and non-disabled actors. Deploying the company’s characteristic wit, insight, and authenticity, including the lived experiences of disabled children and adults, The Super Special Disability Roadshow is the zesty work of artistic director Robert Softley Gale.

Initially commissioned by Edinburgh International Children’s Festival 2021 as a pre-recorded programme, this effervescent adapted version blends both the original humorous film and live performance to intuitively highlight the differences that exist in disabled identities, including those spurred by the generation gap.

Here, time has moved on and Sam, the passionate young producer of The Super Special Disability Roadshow film, remains frustrated that disability equality is not changing fast enough. They embark on a global tour, including Hong Kong, to show more people the movie and gather additional stories from around the world.

Along comes an extremely strange audience member who thinks he get it but just won’t keep quiet. What happens next? See the show to find out!

“Robert Softley Gale and his brilliant co-creator – composer, songwriter and pianist Sally Clay – continue the exploration of the changing politics of disability that Birds of Paradise began, in rousing style, with their 2018 Fringe hit musical My Left Right Foot.”
Mark Fisher, The Guardian

“A collision of memories, bickering, songs, animations, jokes and serious commentary.”
Thom Dibdin, The Stage

“Smart, funny and nuanced online show exploring lived experiences of disability.”

The theatre production is based on the film version of ‘Super Special Disability Road Show’ by Birds of Paradise, commissioned by Imaginate in 2021.
