No Magic Pill
Galway City, Co. Galway
27 September - 30 September 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, written by Christian O’Reilly and directed by Raymond Keane, is a joyful, shameless, no-holds-barred story of one man’s fight for justice and love.

100 minutes, no interval

Strong language. 12+yrs

Supported by the Arts Council in partnership with Disability Federation of Ireland, Independent Living Movement Ireland, Irish Wheelchair Association, Galway City Council, Galway County Council, Dublin City Council and South Dublin County Council.
