About Chronic

Chronic is a ‘hysterical’ one-woman reflection on a journey that navigates an invisible chronic illness, exploring the unconscious medical bias that was experienced along the way. It questions how far we’ve really come since the Freudian days of medical misogyny. Through music and humour, we follow Cat’s journey from her initial symptoms to an acceptance of the disease, experiencing the challenges she faces, not only from her doctors, but mentally and physically. Cat’s initial aspiration is overshadowed by her illness, but this doesn’t stop her finding joy in the most unexpected ways; not in the actualisation of goals, but in simply just ‘being.’ Something we should all be striving for, chronic disease or not. SWK Fest is a festival of theatre that missed out on being staged last year. Twelve events. A different show every night. All taking place in our socially distanced auditorium. See two SWK Fest shows for £25. See three SWK Fest shows for £30 .
