'Pricks' Play

'Pricks' Play

Last month, Diabetes UK Exeter group were kindly invited by the Phoenix to attend a performance of "Pricks" - a one-woman show brilliantly performed by Jade Byrne about her experience of living with Type One diabetes. Her performance was equal parts amusing, uplifting, and extremely moving. As a fellow Type One diabetic, accompanied by two of my Type One friends (!), it was refreshing to hear Jade dispel the vast array of misconceptions about our condition. I found her to be extremely brave and inspiring and would encourage anyone with or without Type One diabetes so support her in making this brilliant show an even greater success.
