I've had over 70,000 pricks… Of the medical kind.

This is my chance to set the record straight about Type 1 diabetics like me. Despite what people say, I'm not bankrupting the NHS. And I can eat cake – a whole bloody cake – if I want to.

This urgent, funny new show blends warmly engaging storytelling with poetry and an original soundscape. It tells a surprisingly moving and uplifting story about families and learning to care for each other better.

Join me as I learn to cope with the ups and downs of dealing with a lot of pricks.

Suitable for ages 12+
