If These Spasms Could Speak at Paisley Arts Centre

Robert Softley gives an outstanding performance in thought-provoking play, ‘If These Spasms Could Speak’ 

Taking to the Paisley Arts Centre stage on Sept 24, this tough yet tender theatre production takes a closer look at disability and how disabled people feel about their bodies.

Presented by Robert Softley in association with The Arches, the play has just commenced a 7 date tour of Scotland following a hugely successful run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Made up of a collection of real-life monologues, ‘If These Spasms Could Speak’ encourages audiences to take a closer look at disability – often viewing their own life through completely fresh eyes as a result.

The touching, sad, surprising and often funny stories that Robert animates help to illustrate how disabled people negotiate life: from love and parenting to attending music festivals.

The performance at Paisley Arts Centre also offers additional access facilities for visually/hearing impaired audiences. To make use of the Audio Description, British Sign Lanugage and rolling text services (which are available via a limited number of small hand held devices) please notify the Box Office at point of booking.
