    ADHD The Musical: Can I have Your Attention Please is a heartfelt work exploring the highs and lows of having the most common neuro developmental disorder worldwide. The show attempts to unpack feelings of shame and blame that occur when being neurodivergent in a world designed for the neurotypical brain.

    Let me take you by the hand and explore: Why are people with ADHD drawn to new experiences? Why have I had so many jobs? Why did I drink enough to kill a small horse before a job interview?

    "It’s like Dora jumped into my brain and wrote a play about my life!"


    Please note the technical workshop originally scheduled for 2pm Thurs 26th October has been cancelled. 


    Audio Description

    Click here for an audio-described introduction to the world of the play made for us by She Goat. This introduction is for blind or visually impaired audiences or for anyone who would prefer to know a bit more about the show before you come and see it (so there's no surprises).

    The audio-described introduction will also be available in the foyer of Camden Peoples Theatre before the performance via QR codes. Please bring headphones!

    Alternatively we will be hosting a listening party in the auditorium on the 27th October at 9pm directly before the show

    Supported by Arts Council England and DaDa.

    "It was fantastic! So relatable, so moving, and it gave me the validation I needed to know I'm not alone in this and no matter how much judgement I receive I AM ENOUGH! Truly the best play I’ve ever seen."
    "I found it very moving. My brother is 27 and only just getting diagnosed so it was a real eye opener."
    "I thought it was a great balance between sensitivity, light-heartedness to portray the messages. The music and singing were lovely and thought provoking, no gimmicks just well performed."
    "Perfect a show that will stay in my thoughts for a long time."
    "Rollercoaster of emotions- both poignant and hilarious"
    "Didn’t know what to expect, was completely surprised by it all -amazing-well done."
    "It’s like Dora jumped into my brain and wrote a play about my life!! So relatable"

    "It is precisely these types of projects, involving these types of people, in these types of theatres that make London what it is."
