Reasons To Be CheerfulCelebrating the infectious music of Ian Dury and The Blockheads, this punk-rock musical and gritty coming-of-age tale by pioneering disabled-led theatre company Graeae is also an angry plea for the social inclusion of disabled people. Nearly 40 years on from The Blockheads' chart dominating era in the late 1970's, the UK is again undergoing massive change. Reasons to be Cheerful is a timely revival of a raucous musical in a new production for 2017 directed by Jenny Sealey which includes a new song 'If It Can't Be Right Then It Must Be Wrong', written exclusively for the show.
