Until August 17, 4.05-5.10pm
Imagine living with an illness that couldn’t be seen or heard? That’s the case for this new show from the Herald Angel winning Cumbernauld Theatre, in which two performers simultaneously lipsync the same story. Only one of them, however, is telling their own real-life story in this intensely intimate exploration of life with cystic fibrosis, an invisible illness which limits the everyday life of those suffering from it.
Developed out of Cumbernauld’s Invited Guest programme that focusses on everyday stories from remarkable people in the local community, Ed Robson’s production is a part-spoken, part-sung meditation that gives voice to one woman’s struggle and the simple joys of breathing.
