A Table Read Recording: Validation (A Rap Musical) by David Thorpe
Validation (A Rap Musical) by David Thorpe
When attending the Edinburgh festival, journalist Owen, who has cerebral palsy, is doubly amazed when for the first time in his life he sees an actor on stage explaining what it is like to have his condition, and then meets a woman, Faith, a theatre ticket seller, with a similar condition. The feeling that his life is changing is compounded when an American theatre producer tells him that he must write about this. He begins to write a musical, collaborating with Faith, but her own ulterior ambitions and ideas for the plot, which involve killing off Owen's wife, Angharad who has terminal cancer, so she can move in with Owen and direct the finished play, only gradually appear. At the last minute, Owen has to feverishly rewrite the ending of the play to keep Angharad alive before the deadline expires and the play is sent to the producer.
