On the eve of Mayday 2004 Kneehigh’s Tristan Sturrock broke his neck falling off a wall in Padstow as part of the celebrations. Paralysed in Treliske hospital and about to become a father for the first time, he was told he may never walk again.
After a sell out run at Bristol Old Vic he brings his poignant, & life-affirming true story back to his homeland Cornwall – appropriately close to Mayday 2012 – as part of a UK tour.
Since his recovery in Derriford’s spinal unit where he was put back together again, he has performed all over the world, most recently on Broadway in Kneehigh’s Brief Encounter. “
Audiences have called it ” Horrifying and wonderful… beautiful and brilliant… transporting and funny… a true celebration of theatre, life and the NHS..
