Cured is a brand new first play by Laurence which has won an Unlimited R&D commission.
For some people, a pilgrimage to Lourdes is an opportunity for prayer, contemplation and quiet self-reflection. But for Connor Fisher, a young, wheelchair-using scally, it’s just a chance to get his leg over! After lying his way onto the trip in order to pursue Rose, a woman he meets in the queue for a disability benefit reassessment, he proceeds to lead his fellow pilgrims astray. There’s Bernie who has recently become disabled and is searching for that ever-elusive miracle; and then there’s Callum who speaks with a voice synthesiser and always has a witty put-down up his sleeve. But thanks to Connor’s influence, before long they end up doing pretty much everything Catholics hate!
There will be a rehearsed reading of Cured at the Liverpool Royal Court Theatre on 12 November. Tickets can be booked here.
Cured has been commissioned by Unlimited and is produced by Liverpool’s Royal Court Theatre in partnership with DaDaFest
