Join Surrey Civic Theatres on October 2 for a screening of the cutting-edge documentary about neurodiversity in the arts, Touretteshero: Me, My Mouth and I. This documentary follows artist, activist, and performer, Jess Thom who has Tourette syndrome as she takes on the biggest creative challenge of her life. In Me, My Mouth and I, Jess takes the audience on a funny and unpredictable journey of discovery into one of Samuel Beckett's most complex plays, Not I, and asks us to reconsider issues of representation and social exclusion as she prepares to perform the role of “Mouth” in front of a live theatre audience.

To attend this online event, tune in here, or follow the link on Surrey Civic Theatres' Facebook or the City of Surrey’s YouTube Channel.
