    Robert Softley in association with The Arches

    We know you want to look, to stare even. It’s OK. You’re allowed.

    If These Spasms Could Speak returns to Edinburgh after a full run at this year's Edinburgh Festival Fringe.  An outstanding solo performance based on a collection of funny, sad, touching and surprising stories about disabled people and their bodies.

    Created and performed by actor Robert Softley (co-creator of National Theatre of Scotland’s Girl X) this show was a sell-out hit at the Arches’ BEHAVIOUR festival in 2012.
