For some people, a pilgrimage to Lourdes is an opportunity for prayer, contemplation and quiet self-reflection. But for Connor Fisher, a young, wheelchair-using scally, it’s just a chance to get his leg over! After lying his way onto the trip in order to pursue Rose, a woman he meets in the queue for a disability benefit reassessment, he proceeds to lead his fellow pilgrims astray. There’s Bernie who has recently become disabled and is searching for that ever-elusive miracle; and then there’s Callum who speaks with a voice synthesiser and always has a witty put-down up his sleeve. But thanks to Connor’s influence, before long they end up doing pretty much everything Catholics hate!
Cured is due to be produced at the Liverpool Royal Court Theatre in 2023 in partnership with Birds of Paradise and DaDaFest.
