nearly fatal road accident condemns Able McMann to walk around in a world where
the overwhelming majority are comfortable in wheelchairs: he is therefore registered
as hypermanic by the Social Welfare Services at a time when government spending
on these is being reduced.
This play shows the sorrow, love and struggle
through which Able at last triumphs over his pitiable condition. This tragicomedy
was written for 'Birds of Paradise', a Glasgow based company that stages plays
with physically disabled actors.
It is published with financial help
from both the Glasgow City and Scottish Arts councils.
