Powerful storytelling combined with rigorous scientific researchA woman lies awake. Pupils like pinpricks, skin saturated in sweat, the odd jerk of a muscle. She hasn’t slept for three months. She knows what's happening to her and there’s nothing she can do.
Inspired by the extraordinary true story of a family cursed with a rare genetic disease, Sleepless recounts the tale of a woman cruelly deprived of sleep until she's pushed to her limits. Sitting at the crossroads of sleep research and prion theory, this cutting edge performance promises an exceptional evening, posing the broader question: how do we decide the value of a human life?
