No Magic Pill

No Magic Pill

By Christian O'Reilly



If you're a wheelchair-user, you've got a simple choice: either you suck sweets in a corner and watch television all day or you try to change the world around you. There ain't gonna be no magic pill in my day. 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, is a joyful, shameless, no-holds-barred story of one man's fight for justice and love. This edition was published to coincide with the production at Black Box, Galway, and the Civic, Tallaght, for Dublin Theatre Festival in October 2022.
