No Magic Pill
by Christian O’Reilly
at Civic Theatre for Dublin Theatre Festival 2022

This is the (mostly) true story of Martin Naughton AKA Michael Collins in a wheelchair. Martin is an agitator. A disruptor. A seeker of justice and planter of (truth) bombs. But will his anarchic quest for equality be derailed by dreams of love and new horizons?

Based on the real life of Martin Naughton and his campaign for independence for disabled people in Ireland, No Magic Pill is a joyful, shameless, no-holds-barred story of one man’s fight for justice and love.

For ages 12+

Audio described performances on 5 and 6 October at 8pm.
