Presented by Looping The Loop.

An autobiographical, audio-based artwork about Shannon’s experience of falling critically ill with a rare brain infection and her journey of rehabilitation with an acquired brain injury. Audience members (6 per show) experience Reassembled, Slightly Askew individually, listening to the audio via headphones while lying on hospital beds. The audio technology makes the sound three-dimensional, causing listeners to feel they are inside Shannon’s head, viscerally experiencing her descent into coma, brain surgeries, early days in the hospital and reintegration into the world with a hidden disability. A story of terror, discovery, humour, but above all, hope.

Yee’s attempts to make sense of what is happening to her reel from the absurd (at one point she thinks the world doesn’t need donkey sanctuaries when it has Cheryl Cole) to the emotional (the sound of a baby crying seems as if the entire world is weeping). When a doctor asks her if she knows where she is, I had to suppress the urge to shout: “In hell”★★★★ The Guardian

Jack Rooke: Good Grief

Produced by Soho Theatre and Jack Rooke

With a coffin full of sympathy snacks, Jack Rooke and his 85-year old Nan Sicely invite you to the happiest town in Britain, where Dad’s dead and the only thing to eat is lasagne. Celebrating finding happiness after tragedy, Rooke’s critically acclaimed debut blends comedy, storytelling and film to explore how we treat the bereaved and the state of welfare for grieving families.

Another compelling production from Soho Theatre, Good Grief was shortlisted for the Best Show by an Emerging Artist in the Total Theatre Awards 2015.

Jack Rooke is a comedian, writer and regular panellist on BBC Radio 1’s The Surgery. He has presented a BBC Radio 4 comedy adaptation of Good Grief and his own BBC Three documentary about happiness, due to air in early 2017.

Directed by Gabriel Bisset-Smith

Initial development by Leisa Rea

“Engaging, frank and humorous” The New York Times

“Good Grief wins you over with openness and hilarity” Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

“Rooke is a delight to spend an hour with, cheerily but sensitively tackling the most painful of subjects and finding hope in them.” ★★★★ The Scotsman

“A mesmerising whirlpool of cleverly-written, tenderly shocking and awfully funny anecdotes” – Gay Times ★★★★★

For ages 14+

Running time: Approx 60 mins

Contains strong language, 14+
