Grace Under Pressure presented by The Joan offers Special Discount to Health Professionals
Health professionals are with us when we’re born, and they’re with us when we die. They devote their lives to caring for us, but how do we care for them? Can a doctor or nurse give a patient the best possible care if he or she hasn’t slept for days? What if they're also being bullied or sexually harassed at work? What if they complain about having to work excessive hours, but are told to stop whinging and suck it up? How do they cope with the pressure?
Acclaimed verbatim theatre makers David Williams and Paul Dwyer, in collaboration with the Sydney Arts and Health Collective, have developed Grace Under Pressure from interviews with interns, medical and nursing students, as well as senior allied health professionals and representatives from the specialist colleges and peak bodies. This unique and compelling theatre work will be showing at The Joan on Saturday 28 March at 2pm & 7.30pm.
Grace Under Pressure explores a conversation about the often-taboo issues faced by people in everyday life. This is theatre with purpose; this is theatre to spread awareness. The audience is invited to peek behind the scenes of this fascinating industry - you may be shocked at what you find.
