Mushy: Lyrically Speaking

Based on the true story of Musharaf Asghar from the C4 documentary, Educating Yorkshire, Rifco Theatre Company bring you a heart-warming new musical play written by Pravesh Kumar (Laila The Musical, Deranged Marriage) and infused with rap and lyrics by award-winning British rapper Raxstar (Undercover).

Mushy, a young man with a debilitating stammer, finds himself at the centre of a television documentary. In a moment of inspiration from his teacher, Mr. Burton, he starts to find a rhythm in his voice through music. Social media erupts, hailing it a miracle cure and both teacher and pupil become overnight celebrities. But Mushy’s journey to find his voice has only just begun... 

Originally Produced by Rifco Theatre Company and Watford Palace Theatre, Mushy: Lyrically Speaking is a funny, life-affirming, rap-musical story of one teenager’s journey to overcome his demons. And win.

‘Feel-good’ is an oft-overused adjective, but with this show by Rifco, it’s exactly the right term.' British Theatre ★★★★ 

‘Here is a show bound to make us laugh while inspiring compassion that would provoke a tear in the toughest of hearts for a young boy whose resilience and unfaltering will to “make it”, not for money and fame, but to find himself, is nothing short of inspirational.’ The Upcoming ★★★★★ 

‘Heart-warming and inspiring… A must-see production!’ Eastern Eye ★★★★ (1/2) 

 'A smart and touching show... opening with a storming first hour of energetic song and drama.’ The Guardian
