curious directive and Norfolk and Norwich Festival present
The Kindness of Strangers
devised by curious directive
The Guardian “superb…a show with brains and a heart”
Time Out “a beautiful, delicate piece of theatre”
Financial Times “on the way back from the show I watched a real ambulance on call with renewed admiration”
It’s 7:03pm on the front-line of the NHS ambulance service.
Sylvia is on her last shift. Lisa is on her first.
The two women patrol the city streets, encountering the full spectrum of human experience.
A once in a life time journey into the world of the paramedic, where the audience are invited into the back of a moving ambulance to witness all that comes with a night shift.
A life-affirming tale of friendship and kindness from the most unlikely of places.
