The Language of Kindness

Event start date Jun

A new work for a new performance world.

Based on Christie Watson’s bestselling memoir of her twenty years as a nurse, The Language of Kindness is an ensemble-style piece of theatre: a joy- filled celebration of nurses and front-line healthcare workers which will resonate with audiences everywhere following the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Language of Kindness brings to life the realities, the challenges, heartbreaks and incomparable joys of working for the NHS and supporting families as they face their best and worst moments.

A socially distanced production about the tactile work of nurses where the company never touch.

Wednesday 9 June: BSL interpreted performance with interpreter Jacqui Beckford, who we are delighted to welcome back, after working with her on These Rooms (2018) and The Big Pink Vogue Ball (2019)

“It made me cry. It made me think. It made me laugh. It encouraged me to appreciate this most underappreciated of professions more than ever” – Adam Kay, author of This is Going to Hurt (on The Language of Kindness: A Nurse’s Story)
