To Helen Back (30 July)

Helen is a burglar. She likes breaking into hospitals. She admits you into a surreal hospital to be look-out as she sneaks around wards, x-ray rooms and cupboards to discover the bizarre, the bemusing – and the badger.

Directed by Hannah Silva, To Helen Back analyses sickness, health and what it really means to recover. So let this one of a kind performer put a hospital around your head as you find out what’s really going on inside hers. Full of heart, dark and hope, this brave show is both funny and moving, honest and deceptive, authentic and surreal.
Helen Seymour presents a powerful and unique theatrical experience.

Nominated for "New Writing South's Best New Play" at Brighton Fringe 2017.

Expanded open mic.
Eight 5 minutes slots are available for you to stretch your poetry wings.
