Forthcoming events

Jess Thom has Tourettes, a condition that means she makes movements and noises she can’t control, called tics.

Following award-winning Backstage In Biscuit Land, she takes on Samuel Beckett‘s short play in a theatrical experience that explores neurodiversity and asks who is allowed to perform what and who gets the final say.

All performances are accompanied by a BSL interpreter/performer and are relaxed. This means that if you tic, shout or move about, you’re more than welcome. And the great thing is, everyone can benefit from a relaxed performance.

On the 7th March, the performance of Not I will be captioned. There will also be a BSL interpreted post-show discussion with the artists. 

Date: 28 Feb to 17 Mar
Time: 7:30pm
Price: £12.50, £10 concs

Age Guidance: 14+
Running time: 60 mins
