A verbatim play based on the moving real-life stories of disabled athletes aspiring to compete at the London 2012 Paralympics.





"For some making it to London 2012 has been literally a matter of life and death and the struggle is not over yet. Get the inside track into the true stories behind Olympic success from the team that presented the multi-award-winning show Motherland, the hit of the 2008 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The Prize draws on interviews with past Olympic medal winners and aspiring first-time competitors. Full of sacrifice, tragedy and touching humour, these stories are brought to life with dynamic physicality taking the audience on a journey - the inside experience of being an elite athlete striving for the ultimate prize."
