The award winning Spoonface Steinberg is a moving and uplifting theatrical experience. Written by Lee Hall, author of the hugely successful Billy Elliot, this intimate monologue is told from the perspective of an autistic child named Spoonface. She will take you on a spellbinding journey of discovery about the world we live in as illness, death, joy, hope, relationships and the meaning of life are all tackled with the power of her unique and extraordinary perception.
The original Radio 4 production of Spoonface Steinberg was an instant phenomenon, breaking all records for repeat requests. This stage production takes the beauty of Lee Hall's poetic writing and couples it with an outstanding central performance from Zoe Thorne.
