For some people, a pilgrimage to Lourdes is an opportunity for prayer, contemplation and quiet self-reflection. But for Connor Fisher, a young, wheelchair-using scally, it’s just a chance to get his leg over!

After lying his way onto the trip in order to pursue Rose, a woman he meets in the queue for a disability benefit reassessment, he proceeds to lead his fellow pilgrims astray. There’s Bernie who has recently become a disabled person and is searching for that ever-elusive miracle; and then there’s Callum who speaks with a voice synthesiser and always has a witty put-down up his sleeve. But thanks to Connor’s influence, before long they end up doing pretty much everything Catholics hate! 

This is a rehearsed reading of a brand new first play by local writer and comedian Laurence Clark. It has been commissioned by Unlimited and produced by Liverpool’s Royal Court Theatre in partnership with DaDaFest.
