A critically acclaimed new musical that puts disability movingly and unapologetically centre stage has been given an extended run in London’s West End.
Rave reviews and standing ovations for the world premiere production of The Little Big Things have led to the joyous, uplifting show being extended to March 2 next year.
Based on the Sunday Times best-selling memoir by Henry Fraser the show is a life-affirming reminder about the transformative power of family, and how sometimes it really is the little things which matter the most.
An avid sportsman and academy player with a premiership Rugby club, Henry Fraser’s life changed forever when in 2009 he had a diving accident. From that moment he had a new life to live as a tetraplegic and new circumstances to accept and adapt to.
Henry’s defiance and determination to prosper against devastating odds led to him wheeling himself out of hospital a whole year earlier than predicted. Today he is a successful artist, inspirational speaker and best-selling author.
Staged @sohoplace, a venue committed to accessibility and inclusion, this heart-swelling show about hope, triumph over adversity and of the joy of being alive, has an explosive theatrical pop soundtrack.
Four of the cast have a disability – two in wheelchairs – and the crew includes the deaf choreographer Mark Smith and the associate director Nickie Miles-Wildin, who is in a wheelchair.
The Little Big Things is featured in the forthcoming edition of Living with Disability and you can book tickets at www.sohoplace.org.
