A gig theatre pop-rock musical exploring identity, healing through music and growing up in the Midlands, Fat Tongue follows a lonely teenager who, after an accident at school, is left with a debilitating stammer. Isolated from their peers, they discover a passion for singing and writing music.
Can they become the universe's greatest Rock Star?
