Some People Have Too Many Legs

Jackie Hagan


In April 2013 Jackie Hagan was commissioned to write a solo show. The following month she was unexpectedly admitted to hospital with a very painful foot. Four months later she left hospital with one less leg and loads more maturity. Along the way she also fell in love, found her Dad and made friends with an old woman who looked like a threadbare tennis ball (with eyes). This is the book of the script of the show, a poetic comedy with daftness, depth and special effects.


"A unique and utterly compelling performer. With wit and charm, she manages to make us laugh in the face of adversity." - Matt Fenton, Artistic Director, Contact Theatre / "Jackie Hagan boldly goes where no one even knows it's possible to go. Then gets the bus back home eating chips on the top deck."- Jo Warburton, poet / "Jackie creates her own individual poetic language with a defiant honesty of storytelling that resonated around my brain for days." - Liz O'Neill, CEO Z-arts / Some People Have Too Many Legs is a Contact Theatre / Flying Solo / National Rural Touring Forum commission, supported by Arts Council England and in association with Take Art
