  • Synopsis

    Sick is about what happens at the end of love. It's a play about isolation and care-giving. It's a play about family and reversing roles. When fantasy is the only release and life is hell, how can you drag yourself back to reality? And what will reality mean to you? "Didn't mean to scare her. I think I just wanted her to recognise me. I've been a stranger here for over a week".
