Helen is a burglar. She likes breaking into hospitals. She admits you into a surreal hospital as she sneaks around wards, x-ray rooms and cupboards to discover the bizarre, the bemusing – and a badger…
To Helen Back is a hilarious, unique and powerful theatrical experience that analyses sickness, health and what it really means to recover, while blurring the boundaries between spoken word, comedy and performance art.
‘Humorous, witty, dark and thought provoking’
‘Really something special and unique… like nothing I have ever seen before’
‘Hilarious, important, relevant and moving.’
Nominated for New Writing South’s Best New Play, Brighton Fringe 2017
Written and performed by Helen Seymour. Directed by Hannah Silva.
We’re presenting the 1.30pm matinee as a relaxed performance so that people who might not be able to arrange childcare normally to go to the theatre can bring children along. This means babes in arms are welcome, lights will be low and parents can leave the auditorium if they need to.
We’ll also be providing a crèche for older children on a pay-what-you can basis. The crèche has limited numbers so you'll need to book in advance, there’s no charge to book but donations will be welcome on the day.
You'll be able to add tickets for the crèche to your order once you've added tickets to the matinee to your basket.
Celebrating International Women's Day
To mark International Women’s Day and celebrate 100 years since women won the right to vote, we’re presenting our second annual mini-festival of performance and events by inspiring women in performing arts.
Crossing music, theatre, spoken word, talks and comedy, we’ll be presenting some rising talents, free events in the foyer and workshops to take part in.
