Monnica Leighton will be playing the role of Sister Jones in the production of See Me for Myself at The Tabard Theatre in October
Teenagers Sally and Stephen tragically find themselves meeting each other for the first time in a hospice. Never allowing the time constraints of their illnesses to quell their youthfulness, they still have the will to love, laugh and be happy.
When Sally makes a wish under a new moon, she digs deep to find fulfilment that has been denied to her in her short and tragic life, while ‘bad boy’ Stephen discovers a capacity for tenderness and a way to belong. Caring for the physical and emotional needs of her two young patients is Sister Jones, but does she go too far and breach medical ethics?
What evolves is a touching yet uplifting tale of two teenagers trying to make sense of the world and the time they have left and the question arises of how far state and family should intervene in a child’s wishes.
See Me For Myself is directed by acclaimed director David Phipps-Davis whose previous work at the Tabard includes Ruddigore and An Ideal Husband. Written by local author and retired surgeon Chris Naylor and journalist Joanna Way, this raw and potent drama makes its world premiere at the Tabard Theatre.
