Part of NOTHING TO SEE HERE - 4 nights of contemporary performance exploring our bodies, our selves and how we treat humans in the 21st century.

Performed by Adam Pownall & Kitty Randle

Adam Pownall woke up to find his body shutting down. Unable to walk, talk or blink and nobody knew why...

When Guillain Barré Syndrome affected Adam it caused full paralysis within days. Getting Better Slowly tells the story of his illness through a creative collision of new writing, verbatim accounts, sound and movement. How does it feel when your closest relationship is with the illness that's holding you back? Adam's frank and moving account of how he dealt with GBS and the two years he spent recovering - including months spent learning how to walk and talk again - explores the relationship we all have with our bodies and our health.

Telling his story with warmth, humour and honesty, and explaining how GBS is still part of his life, he invites audiences to consider how they would deal with an unexpected illness or accident affecting them or someone they love.

Recommended for ages 11+ (occasional strong language & scenes that some might find distressing)

Running time: 65 minutes + post-show Q&A in the Circle Bar after the show (free to all ticket holders)
