Marvel at Touretteshero Jess Thom’s version of the short play Not I, the mouthy monologue by Samuel Beckett.
Thom has Tourette syndrome, which liberates the performer and the audience from the constraints of Beckett’s notoriously difficult dramatic monologue and asks important questions about the accessibility of art.
This theatrical experience explores neurodiversity and examines who is allowed to perform what and who gets the final say.
Thom, and her alter-ego Touretteshero, is best known for her show Backstage in Biscuit Land. The title was inspired by her most common vocal tic, which sees her saying ‘biscuit’ thousands of times a day.
