Press shot for Pricks, showing Jade with various diabetes-related items

About

This is the rescheduled date for the cancelled 2020 performance.

Written and performed by Jade Byrne.

"I've had over 70,000 pricks... Of the medical kind.

"This is my chance to set the record straight about Type 1 diabetics like me. Despite what people say, I'm not bankrupting the NHS. And I can eat cake – a whole bloody cake – if I want to."

This urgent, funny new show blends warmly engaging storytelling with poetry and an original soundscape. It tells a surprisingly moving and uplifting story about families and learning to care for each other better.

Join Jade as she learns to cope with the ups and downs of dealing with a lot of pricks.

Suitable for ages 12+

Presented by Jade Byrne from Blackbird Creative.

"It's entertaining; it has humour and pathos, some anguish, some anger and not a little sadness but, ultimately, positivity and happiness." – British Theatre Guide

"Educational, heart-wrenching and heart-warming" – The List

"A revelatory piece of theatre" – The Stage

"A polished, warm-hearted performance" – The Scotsman
