The play, written and directed by Georgie Staight will play at the Arts Theatre from the 12th September until the 21st September.
Aimed at raising awareness of the debilitating affects neurodegenerative diseases have not only on the sufferer but their loved ones too, Dreamless Sleep follows the story of a couple as they struggle to deal with a big secret which affects their relationship.
N and H have a normal relationship. Both are young and successful, having everything to live for – except when H’s biggest secret is revealed, the couple must then battle together to prevent their relationship falling apart. The play follows one woman’s journey as she copes with Huntington’s disease.
With more than 11 million people in the UK suffering from a neurological disease, Dreamless Sleep is a poignant and heartwarming insight into the way the diseases can affect personal relationships as well as the individuals.
The production is partnered with Huntington’s Disease Association England & Wales and will be performed by Niamh Watson and Hannah Lawrence.
Director Georgie Staight said: “Dreamless Sleep tackles not just the effect of neurological disorders on the sufferer but the huge strain it puts on their loved ones. I wanted to put a magnifying glass up to one couple, and look at how living with such a disease can lead to the strengthening and breakdown of relationships.”
