Message from Natasha Wood

I promised Tash I would post this. Lend your support by going or passing on please 🙂

Following my sell out last year, I’ve been invited back to The Nottingham Playhouse to perform my stage play Rolling with Laughter

It is a piece of theatre, not stand up (or in my case sit down), its a play with lots of laughter and a few poignant moments.
I perform over 30 characters myself, everyone is real and every line is true and you’ll be taken from London’s West End, to Bulwell market to Hollywood and back again with all sorts of tales and cities in between.  For more information, footage, press features, TV & Radio interviews and reviews see

Written by Natasha Wood and Beverly Sanders
Directed by Cameron Watson

After a sold out performance in Nottingham, a sell out at the Edinburgh Festival, and critical acclaim in Los Angeles and in the West End, the witty, sassy and determined Natasha Wood brings her hilarious one-woman play to her home town at The Nottingham Playhouse. Natasha has had it all – a quirky family, a fairy-tale marriage and dream jobs all over the world. Except that she’s lived her entire life from a wheelchair, having been born with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, leaving her to weak to lift even a pint of beer. Her story is an empowering, humorous and unique take on life, lingerie and sex with a little disability thrown in. It’s a journey that’s made audiences on both sides of the Atlantic cry a little and laugh a lot .
Join her for one night in her home town as she rolls straight into the Nottingham Playhouse.
It’s a one hour and twenty minute ride of a lifetime!.
