ADHD The Musical: Can I Have Your Attention Please?

Wed 11 October 2023 // 19:00 (SOLD OUT)

Tickets: £15 Full £12 Concession

ADHD The Musical: Can I Have Your Attention Please? is a wonderful mix of facts, storytelling and some cracking original show tunes. You’ll laugh, you’ll learn and you won’t be afraid to fail baby! This new, exciting and heartfelt work explores the highs and lows of having the most common neuro developmental disorder worldwide. The show attempts to unpack feelings of shame and blame that occur when being neurodivergent in a world designed for the neurotypical brain. Let me take you by the hand and explore: Why people with ADHD are drawn to new experiences? Why have I had so many jobs? Why did I drink enough to kill a small horse before a job interview?

7pm Doors, 7.30pm show starts

With post show discussion on Wednesday 11th October

BSL Interpreted

What Audiences say:  

The dynamics, the comedy, the musical elements, the stats. Made me cry when I saw a father hold his sons hand when the bear entered. Lots of audience felt this. Well done. 

It’s like Dora jumped into my brain and wrote a play about my life!! So relatable 

Didn’t know what to expect, was completely surprised by it all -amazing-well done. 

Rollercoaster of emotions- both poignant and hilarious 

Perfect a show that will stay in my thoughts for a long time. 

I thought it was a great balance between sensitivity, light-heartedness to portray the messages. The music and singing were lovely and thought provoking, no gimmicks just well performed. 

I found it very moving. My brother is 27 and only just getting diagnosed so it was a real eye opener. 

It was fantastic! So relatable, so moving, and it gave me the validation I needed to know I'm not alone in this and no matter how much judgement I receive I AM ENOUGH! Truly the best play I’ve ever seen.
