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.
