To Helen Back

written and performed by Helen Seymour
directed by Hannah Silva

Helen is a burglar. She likes breaking into hospitals. Helen admits you into a surreal hospital as she sneaks around wards, x-ray rooms and cupboards to discover the bizarre, the bemusing – and a badger…

Directed by Hannah Silva, To Helen Back analyses sickness, health and what it really means to recover. It’s a funny, unique and powerful theatrical experience, which blurs the boundaries between spoken word, comedy and performance art.

Nominated for New Writing South’s Best New Play at the Brighton Fringe 2017

‘Really something special and unique… like nothing I have ever seen before’

‘Hilarious, important, relevant and moving
