If you’re a wheelchair­user, you’ve got a simple choice

Either you suck sweets in a corner and watch television all day or you try to change the world around you

There ain’t gonna be no magic pill in my day

This is the (mostly) true story of Martin Naughton, AKA Michael Collins, in a wheelchair

Martin is an agitator

A disruptor

A seeker of justice and planter of (truth) bombs

But will his anarchic quest for equality be derailed by dreams of love and new horizons?

Based on the real life of Martin Naughton and his campaign for independence for disabled people in Ireland, No Magic Pill, written by Christian O’Reilly, is a joyful, shameless, no-holds-barred story of one man’s fight for justice and love
