The Human Touch
Edge Hill University will be hosting this production in partnership with Breathe Out Theatre, and is supported by the Arts Council England.
The Human Touch delivers a collection of stories exploring the UK care system through the eyes of the cared for, and the carers. Three unique stories will take you on a journey, focusing on different perspectives of care and exploring the idea ‘who cares for who?’ The Human Touch offers humour, sensitivity, and inspiration for all those involved in, or interested in various aspects of health and social care.
Breathe Out Theatre is Manchester-based non-profit company set up by writer / producer Rob Johnson, (winner of The Kings Cross Award for New Writing). The company works to produce new writing, bespoke plays, and high quality productions in collaboration with actors, directors, designers and technicians.
Presented by the Postgraduate Medical Institute
