Sun 17th May 17:00
One day in 2018, Catherine woke up with persistent numbness in her hands and feet. As the months passed, the pain grew, and doctors provided no answers.
In Chronic, a darkly comic new musical, Catherine reflects on her ongoing journey through an invisible chronic illness, facing head-on the gender bias she experienced throughout her treatment. Join her as she celebrates moments of unexpected happiness and overwhelming support from family and friends, and questions how far we’ve really come since the Freudian days of medical misogyny.
We are delighted to welcome Lara Bloom, President and CEO of The Elhers-Danlos Society for a post-show talk with the Chronic Team on Sunday 17th May. Lara is responsible for raising global awareness of rare, chronic and invisible diseases. In the talk, we will get to hear all about the amazing work Lara does and about her own journey to diagnosis and living with a Chronic illness.
