Backstage in Biscuit Land

By Touretteshero

Sunday 10 April

7:30 PM

Tickets £15 (£10 concession)

Main Stage, Palace Theatre

Jess Thom has Tourettes, a condition that makes her say ‘biscuit’ 16,000 times a day. Her unusual neurology gives her a unique perspective on life; one she’s unleashed 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. Jess is neurologically incapable of staying on script, and that’s when the fun begins.

‘Delightful’ (Stephen Fry)

 “You’ll definitely laugh, you may cry, you’ll probably get a biscuit” ★★★★★ Public Review

Suitable for ages 14+ (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.)
