Kissing Linford Christie by Victoria Beesley

A new solo show about one girl’s journey to Olympic success.


Age suitability: 8+ (P5+)

On tour in autumn 2022 with Theatre In Schools Scotland

Vickie wants to compete at the Olympics. There is only one obstacle; she isn’t very good at sport. Yet despite the odds, her love for athletics takes her all the way to London 2012. Inspired by Victoria’s own childhood obsession with athletics, this is a story about loving failure and dreaming big – even if there’s no chance you’ll make that dream come true.
