To Helen Back
written and performed by Helen Seymour
directed by Hannah Silva

Helen is a burglar. Helen likes breaking into hospitals. She 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
