Backstage in Biscuit Land

11 Feb 2015

Jess Thom has Tourettes, a condition that makes her say 'biscuit' 16,000 times a day. Her unusual neurology gives her a unique perspective on life: one she's about to unleash on the world. Weaving comedy, puppetry, singing and incredible tics, Backstage in Biscuit Land explores spontaneity, creativity, disability and things you never knew would make you laugh. Geranium-bashing and penguin gang bangs may or may not feature - no two shows can ever be the same. Jess is neurologically incapable of staying on script, and that's when the fun begins.
