As common on neurology wards as MS, Functional Neurological Disorder looks and feels like a problem with the workings of the brain.

Sufferers experience disabling symptoms that range from tremors to seizures and from blindness to paralysis, all with no physical cause.

With three actors and live music, looks at the search for meaning that follows a difficult diagnosis – and how it feels to be told there's nothing physically wrong with you when your brain is telling you you're sick.

Back for 2018. (Some reviews from 2016)

“A slick, slippery devised piece about inexplicable medical disabilities.”

Fergus Morgan (The Stage, What's On Stage)

“Intricately-layered, exquisitely detailed... Surprisingly affecting... Deeply sophisticated, sensitive stuff.”

Tim Bano (The Stage, Time Out)

“Fresh and striking... A hurtling descent down a nightmarish medical rabbit hole... We leave in a mood of heightened reflection.”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“Churns with questions about 'reality.' Is Sophie's condition an illness, an illusion or an invention?.. Clever.”

Matt Trueman (What's On Stage, Time Out)
