As common on neurology wards as MS, Functional Neurological Disorder looks and feels like a problem with the workings of the brain.
Sufferers experience disabling symptoms that range from tremors to seizures and from blindness to paralysis, all with no physical cause.
With three actors and live music, Still Ill looks at the search for meaning that follows a difficult diagnosis – and how it feels to be told there’s nothing physically wrong with you when your brain is telling you you’re sick.
Following the success of Dog Show in autumn 2015, Still Ill is the new show from Kandinsky, exploring the unsettling world of the undiagnosable.
Kandinsky is a multi-award winning theatre company with a national and international reputation for exciting, inventive new work.
Previous productions have twice won the Sunday Times Playwriting Award and been shortlisted for the Carol Tambor Award; most recently, Dog Show won the Peter Brook Festival Award 2015 and the OffWestEnd Award for Best Ensemble.
Kandinsky are writer Al Smith, Complicite Associate director James Yeatman and producer Lauren Mooney.
