Mushy - Lyrically Speaking

Mushy - Lyrically Speaking


_The _story of a boy without a voice and the teacher who helped him to find it.

An uplifting tale inspired by the true story of a Musharaf Asghar (_Educating Yorkshire_).  Mushy, a young man with a debilitating stammer, has always found himself on the outside desperate to find his voice and his place in the world. Suddenly he is thrust into the lime light of primetime television and the nation is watching as he begins to find the ability to speak through music. Told through rap and lyrical narration, Rifco Theatre Company bring you the world premiere of this heart-warming new play written by Pravesh Kumar (_Laila The Musical, The Deranged Marriage_) and award-winning British Rapper Raxstar (_Keep It Undercover_).

Book by Pravesh Kumar, Lyrics by Raxstar.  Inspired by a true story. Yorkshire, 2013.

Rifco Theatre Company present a Rifco Studio production
