About the event

'I don't have to remember being in pain. I'm not sure that's something we can do. 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.

Words and an original sound score combine to create an explosive dialogue about love and perception.

An experiment in how we talk about pain - and if we ever do that in a way someone else can understand.

A Scotsman Fringe First award-winning show exploring life in extremity and the joy that can be found there.

All performances are captioned, audio described and wheelchair accessible.

'Exhilarating theatre. Funny and sad and wise'
The Guardian
