The Shape of the Pain

_ Time: 19.30
_ Duration: 70 mins
_ Venue: Old Lab
_ Age Suitability: 12+

I don’t have to remember being in pain. I’m not sure that’s something we can do anyway. And in my case, it’s irrelevant. You can’t remember something that’s still happening.

One woman attempts to articulate her experience of physical pain. Pain with no apparent cause. Also, she’s met someone, and they want to make this work. A new show from a Fringe First award-winning team exploring life in extremity and the joy that can be found there.
