A theatrical poetic comedy show about making the bad stuff in life work to your advantage.
Jackie Hagan spent the summer of 2013 in hospital, it was a boot-camp in coping and seeing the humour in the dark places. She lost a leg, fell in love and made best friends with a narky old woman called Edna.
Infectiously optimistic, a bit daft, a bit real, featuring special effects and a unicorn.
