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

Following the 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 BSL integrated 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. An audio flyer will be released soon.

★★★★ “A brilliant piece of conceptual performance.” What’s On Stage

★★★★ “Intense and powerful.” – Frankly My Dear

“Illuminating… Could you have a better meeting of material and performer? When she first read [Samuel Beckett’s] play, she felt like it had been written about her.” – Time Out

“Jess is magnetic, she is hilarious, she has the audience rapt.” – Disability Arts Online
