About: Touretteshero: Backstage in Biscuitland

Jess Thom has Tourettes, a condition that makes her say 'biscuit' 16,000 times a day. Her unusual neurology gives her a unique life perspective; one she's about to unleash 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. Geranium bashing and penguin gangbangs may or may not feature – no two shows can be the same.

Winner: Total Theatre Award, Edinburgh 2014

Co-Creators: Jess Thom, Jess Mabel Jones, Matthew Pountney
Produced by Jolie Booth and Matthew Pountney. Supported by Unlimited, Graeae & BAC.

Please note: 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 audiences may find offensive. All performances are relaxed performances

Part of FIRST 2015: A FESTIVAL OF SOLO PERFORMANCES, supported by Arts Council England.
