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 an ASL 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.
Performed in English and American Sign Language (ASL).
