*This show has been cancelled*

In light of the current situation we are saddened to announce that this show has been cancelled. 

We are asking all our audiences that if your show is cancelled that you consider using this opportunity to support local artists and the theatre by waiving a refund in light of a charitable donation to Theatre Deli Sheffield. However we absolutely understand if you are unable to so please send a refund request and we will process this for you.

Alternatively you can also donate straight to our crowdfunder here:  https://www.gofundme.com/f/play-your-role

It’s a scary time for small charities and businesses so we appreciate everyone’s support and hope this continues in the coming months. We’re looking at setting up gift cards that can be used at a later date.

Thank you for your understanding at this time and we all hope you're taking care of yourselves.

Stay safe- Theatre Deli Sheffield.

In this 'Heart-wrenchingly moving and unquestionably funny” (Evening Standard) stand-up show Richard Stott examines body image, mental health and being disabled in an image-obsessed world.

Stott was born with Poland Syndrome making him lopsided with a misshapen hand. He had life-changing surgery to add toes for fingers on his left hand, which growing up, gave him a unique and unflinchingly funny outlook on the world.

This fast paced romp through the taboos of being different combines anarchic storytelling and acidic punchlines about learning how to roll with the hand life dealt you.

The show is supported by Arts Council England and received with critical acclaim at the 2019 Edinburgh Festival.

“Stott has put together a thoroughly enjoyable hour about coping with disability, trying to achieve your dreams, coming to terms with personal shortcomings and the importance of communicating with one another. Better still, he’s managed to make it stand out amongst myriad weaker shows trying to achieve the same”. The Skinny
