A gunshot on New Years Eve on a beach in Thailand changed musical theatre artist Nils Bergstrand’s life forever.
Through original cabaret songs we hear Nils’ inspiring story full of heart and surprisingly, humour. Taking us from an island in the tropics through 40 surgeries, amputation and tough rehabilitation, we learn how this one legged man redefined himself, managed to cohabit with his disability and eventually to rise again.
An entertaining show from an internationally trained musical artist, full of charm, honest observations and personal wit creating a must see, heart warming and enlightening production.
The One Legged Man Show has toured sold out venues through Sweden and the UK and was voted Best of the Fest and Must See Show at the Edinburgh Festival
