Rachel Bagshaw and China Plate present

‘I am just you, with one of the dials tuned to a station that I can't switch off. You with a dial jammed. That's all.’

About the show

The Shape of the Pain

Conceived and Directed by Rachel Bagshaw

Written by Chris Thorpe 

[Currently in development]

 

When the brain reprogrammes itself into constant fight or flight mode, how does it cope, how do you cope, how does your partner cope? 

‘I’m just you, with one of the dials tuned to a station that I can't switch off. You with a dial jammed. That's all.'

This one-woman show weaves together words and sound to explore living a life in extremity and the joy that can be found there. 

A new piece about love, perception and constant pain.

 

Produced by China Plate.  Funded by The Wellcome Trust.  Commissioned by The New Wolsey Theatre and Battersea Arts Centre.  Supported by Harlow Playhouse.
