The Commonwealth Games may be over but we are keeping the excitement going with our new theatre show for everyone aged 9+. Precious Emily tells the stories of two inspirational weightlifters:
Precious McKenzie (4’10”) the legendary four times Commonwealth Games gold medal winner, whose incredible tale includes an escape from apartheid in South Africa, his father being killed by a crocodile and an attempt to join the circus.
Emily Campbell (5’11”) the charismatic and trailblazing Olympic Games silver medal winner whose uplifting adventure includes carnival, school sports day, a gold shirt, difficult decisions and lots of hard work.
This beautiful, witty show is also about all the lessons weightlifting can teach us, even when the heavy things we have to lift are only in our minds.
This is a bi-lingual show, performed in English & BSL.
