Thalidomide!! A Musicalmore...
by BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for the Times
Fraser, himself a near-armless victim of the thalidomide catastrophe, wrote the script, the lyrics and the tunes and shares the BAC stage with just one another performer. He’s the father who committed suicide by car-crash after begetting a son he regarded as “worse than pus”, and he’s that thalidomide baby. Among other characters, Anna Winslet is the boy’s mother and Katie, the girl who falls for Fraser’s Glyn.
