WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A moving and humorous award winning production based on the true story of a person trapped in their own body. ...the enormously affecting and heartbreakingly honest true story of New Zealand sportsman, adrenalin junkie and all-round wild man Nick Chisholm, whose life ground to a halt when he was struck by a major stroke during a game of rugby at the age of 27. He was left with a condition known to those in the medical world as ''locked in syndrome' and to those who have experienced it as "pure hell." The play explores Nick's recovery, the many characters that surround and populate his life and the unlikely road to true love, all of which sees Renee play no less than eight characters. LYONS was drawn to the story of Nick after striking up a friendship with his brother Matt at university.
