The Language of Kindness
The world premier UK Tour comes to Tunbridge Wells.
Based on Christie Watson's bestselling memoir of her twenty years as a nurse, The Language of Kindness is an ensemble-style piece of contemporary dance theatre: a joy- filled celebration of nurses and front-line healthcare workers which will resonate with audiences everywhere following the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Language of Kindness brings to life the realities, the challenges, heartbreaks and incomparable joys of working for the NHS and supporting families as they face their best and worst moments.
A socially distanced production about the tactile work of nurses where the actors never touch.
The matinee performance on Saturday 29 May 2021 at 2.30pm will be BSL interpreted.
There will be a free post-show discussion panel featuring the author of the Language of Kindness, Christie Watson, and members of the cast on Thursday 27 May 2021.
The Language of Kindness was featured as a BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week and Guardian, Daily Telegraph and Sunday Times Book of the Year and was in the top 50 best-selling books of 2019.
Presented by Wayward Productions in a co-production with Assembly Hall Theatre Tunbridge Wells, Complicité and Warwick Arts Centre in association with Shoreditch Town Hall and Guy Chapman.
