Albie is an ordinary man who experienced ‘a scuffle with death’ which unleashed his creative genie. He can’t stop painting since he emerged from a coma. The extraordinary chaos of Albie’s life and the sound of a continuous rushing white noise in his head drives his compulsion to paint. What is happening to him? There’s no escaping who he was as his past still haunts him; but what lies ahead?
Inspired by a true story, Birds of Paradise Theatre Company’s latest production takes you on an ironic and humorous journey entering the world of brain injury, consciousness, memory and creativity!
