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.
