'Finally, I'm going to stick the knife in'
by EMMA JOHN for the Guardian

It all started as a joke. People would ask Mat Fraser what he was working on and he would reply: "I'm writing a musical. Thalidomide!! A Musical." Even the thought made people laugh. And the idea tickled the 43-year-old actor, who has spent much of his life in rock and reggae bands, so he wrote it.

'You can't put punk in a stage show, they cancel each other out'
by ANDREA MULLANEY for the Scotsman

"My previous work might have been more confrontational but I'm mellowing. One thing I've learned in the last decade is that if you want any kind of social justice, people are not going to listen if you complain about it. But I'm a big fan of sick entertainment in bad taste, and I've always used shock tactics in my work.

Thalidomide!! A Musical
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.
