A woman stood up and said ‘I have a story to share’...  She points to a man sitting among many others - “That is my husband… he’s been suffering for last 20 years…”

 All eyes shift to the man.  He looks around the room with awkwardness. They others gasp in surprise, they’ve known the couple all their lives. 

“… and with him, I too…” she continues…

 

“… surprising, inventive, skilful - Pulse

"Phenomenal performance… A powerful and moving piece that will resonate with many.." - Audience
