Sick by Shey Hargreaves

Sick by Shey Hargreaves


An intimate and exhilarating play about space science, mental health and communication - both interpersonal and intergalactic.

Renowned astronomer Maggie Hill is giving a lecture about her career to inspire young women to work in science. She’s also attending her first ever therapy session in order to overcome some debilitating anxiety. Both events force Maggie to examine her greatest achievements and biggest regrets.

A bittersweet, highly entertaining one-woman show about the impact of four years of cuts to the NHS.

Storyteller Shey Hargreaves draws on her experience working as a receptionist in a busy emergency unit to explore the way that austerity affects patients, the staff who care for them, their families and friends.

A fresh, raucous yet moving perspective on the chaos of a hospital emergency department.
