Backstage in Biscuit Land

Runs until Thursday 6th October

Tickets: €15

Time: 8PM

Company: Touretteshero

Jess Thom has Tourettes syndrome, a condition that makes her say ‘biscuit’ 16,000 times a day. Her unusual neurology gives her a unique perspective on life; one she’s unleashing on the world. This two-woman solo show weaves comedy, puppetry, singing, and incredible tics to explore spontaneity, creativity, disability, and things you never knew would make you laugh. Jess is neurologically incapable of staying on script, so no two shows can be the same. And that’s when the fun begins.

All Touretteshero’s performances are relaxed. This means you’re welcome to move around and make noise during the show.  Jess is one of the 10% of people with Tourettes Syndrome who has swearing tics, so this performance may include the involuntary use of words that some audience members may find offensive.
