Musical showcasing life with ADHD coming to Wakefield during UK-Wide tour
With the help of Dolly Parton, Julie Andrews and Cher, the piece attempts to unpack the feelings of shame and failure commonly felt by those with the disorder.
The tour will stop at the Theatre Royal Wakefield on September 23, with tickets available starting at £15 for everyone over the age of 12-years-old.
The show - which will also be taking in dates at venues in Scarborough, Liverpool, Devon and others - also explores the differences in which ADHD manifests in men and women, something which the medical profession has only relatively recently begun to acknowledge.
With support from Arts Council England, Dora worked with Professor Joydeep Bhattacharya - a neuroscientist from Goldsmiths University in London - to produce the musical comedy lecture which navigates the challenges of being diagnosed with ADHD as an adult.
Dora herself said: "It is a really important time to be sharing this work. ADHD and neurodiversity only very recently is prevalent in mainstream society.
"For many years women have been left out of the conversation and research. I hope to provide an honest, eye opening and entertaining account of my experience as a woman with ADHD.
"My aim is to create acceptance, understanding and open up the conversation as to what having ADHD means. I do not have any answers, but I have stories, songs and multiple wigs."
The exciting and heartfelt production, which was described as "a beautiful, poignant, moving and incredibly important ride from start to finish" by the Liverpool Theatre Festival, is a journey of self discovery and self acceptance that looks to end the stigma and address common dismissals of ADHD.
