The show is set to tour for at least six months, with Boyle being played by actress Elaine C Smith, aka the woman from Rab C Nesbitt who was also in the Calendar Girls stage play thing. You know the one.
The Daily Mail report Boyle as saying, "I never thought my life story would end up on the stage but a lot has happened in two years and it is a very exciting prospect", going on to promise "a few surprises along the way". What could they be? An actual appearance by Simon Cowell? Maybe that young lady who laughed at Boyle when she walked on stage at the Britain's Got Talent auditions will come on to be educated?
Producer Michael Harrison said: "It's got all the qualities of a fairytale, but with the added bonus of being absolutely true." Yeah right Michael as if Rapunzel wasn't true.
