About Pricks

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 me as I learn to cope with the ups and downs of dealing with a lot of pricks. Jade Byrne is a theatre maker with type 1 diabetes, which is not type 2 diabetes. This is her show. It's warm, big-hearted and inspiring.
