White Nurse is set in a world similar to our own, but with one key difference – L.A.R.C: The rehabilitation centre with a difference. Layla begins her journey to conquer her addiction with eight doses of medication. These eight doses are the key to her overcoming an unhealthy relationship but it’s harder than it seems. By combining physical and emotional addiction, Layla hopes her medication will make her fall out of love with her boyfriend Joe. Over the course of these eight doses we see Layla battle with her Nurse and remember the relationship that brought her here. White Nurse is a show about love, addiction and the internal struggle. It focuses on emotional and physical abuse in relationships, and the way young women are manipulated into dependency. Although it tackles deep issues, the play is inherently hopeful, showing that the victims of domestic abuse need not be trapped in the cycle forever.
