A powerful play exploring the dilemmas facing relatives and health professionals during end of life care in hospital. Read More >
Written by Mike Kenny, this powerful play has been created from real life stories about ordinary people experiencing the ordinary but extraordinary reality of their loved ones dying in a hospital ward. Juxtaposing intense testimony and moving dramatic imagery with a life sized puppet, the play explores the dilemmas facing both relatives and health professionals during end of life care in a Midlands hospital.
Jim and Joyce recall their encounters with insight, confusion, humour and love as they meet health professionals and carers on a journey which like Joyce none of us would wish to share but most of us will.
First seen as part of SUSPENSE 2011. There will be a post-show discussion with health professionals, social scientists and members of the company.
Suitable for adults (minimum age 14)
