Chains on Sink Plugs Ed2016

When David Nicol was born, he weighed no more than a bag of sugar. He was put in an incubator and his parents were told that he would be akin to a vegetable. This is hard to believe when sitting in the audience, laughing along with this articulate and relaxed performer. Nichol’s first solo show, ‘Chains on Sink Plugs’, is a look back at his life in Scotland and at what it’s like to live everyday with a disability. Rooted in humour, the show is a heart-warming 50 minutes of autobiographical storytelling. It’s an important story, the likes of which we don’t often get the chance to hear, and one that David tells with passion, humour and charm.

Forest Fringe, until 19 Aug.
