The Language of Kindness is a stylish and powerful piece of contemporary dance theatre. This emotive performance by the ensemble is a upbeat celebration of front-line healthcare workers inspired by the bestselling memoir of Christie Watson who worked as a nurse for 20 years in the NHS.
“The Language of Kindness brings to life the realities, the challenges, heartbreaks and incomparable joys of working for the NHS and supporting families as they face their best and worst moments.”
There will be a free post-show discussion panel featuring the author of the Language of Kindness, Christie Watson, and members of the cast on Thursday 27 May 2021.
The Language of Kindness was featured as a BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week and Guardian, Daily Telegraph and Sunday Times Book of the Year and was in the top 50 best-selling books of 2019.
