One ‘invisible illness’, lots of puppets, a self-deprecating actor, far too many biscuits and a sprinkle of absurdity all can be found in the room upstairs. But can you handle the journey up?

This atmospheric show raises awareness of ME, an ‘invisible illness’, through the lens of a mother/daughter relationship. Based on true events, this play with original compositions explores how this condition gradually penetrates every element of someone's life and proves how sometimes laughter is not only the best medicine, but often the only one that's available.
