Mushy: Lyrically Speaking

Tue 24 - 25 September

An uplifting tale inspired by the true story of Musharaf Asghar (Educating Yorkshire).

Dewsbury, 2013. Mushy, a young man with a debilitating stammer, finds himself at the centre of a television documentary. In a moment of inspiration from his teacher, Mr. Burton, he starts to find a rhythm in his voice through music. Social media erupts hailing it a miracle cure and both teacher and pupil become overnight celebrities.

But Mushy’s journey to find his voice has only just begun…

Rifco Theatre Company (Pyar Actually, Dishoom!) bring you the world premiere of this heart-warming new play written by Pravesh Kumar (Laila The Musical, The Deranged Marriage) infused with rap and lyrics by award-winning British rapper Raxstar (Keep It Undercover).

Starring Varun Raj (Dubailand, Baar Baar Dekho), Oliver Longstaff (Operation Neptune, Absurd Person Singular) and Medhavi Patel (Three Sat Under the Banyan Tree, Women of the Mahabharata).

Rifco Theatre Company and Watford Palace Theatre present a Rifco Studio production.
Media partner Star Plus
