‘It Only Takes a Minute’, a fascinating one woman show, presented by C21 theatre company,
will be performed at the Sean Hollywood Arts Centre, Newry, on Friday 19 October at 8pm.
The play focuses on the life of Michelle, a young woman living with Asperger’s. This fast-paced,
show, written by Tom Finlay, features a stand out performance by Anna Kyle, one of Northern
Ireland’s emerging disabled actresses. The innovative show also features the songs of “Take
That”, which at times sees the audience singing along.
The piece begins with 26 year old Michelle receiving her diagnosis. “Take That” become
Michelle’s confidants, mentors, and best friends in the solace of her bedroom. This results in a
culmination of events that result in meltdown and a period where Michelle is forced to learn
more about herself and the world around her.
Newry, Mourne and Down District Council Chairman, Councillor Mark Murnin said, “Asperger’s
affects many of our young people and this exciting play, with a riveting performance by Anna
Kyle, is one not to be missed.”
