‘I don't have to remember being in pain. I'm not sure that's something we can do. And in my case, it's irrelevant. You can't remember something that's still happening’

One woman attempts to articulate her experience of physical pain. Pain with no apparent cause. Also, she’s met someone, and they want to make this work. 

A new show from a Fringe First award-winning team exploring life in extremity and the joy that can be found there.

Commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre and New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich. Supported by artsdepot. Funded by The Wellcome Trust.

Press quotes on 2014 Fringe First winner, Confirmation:

"...an 80 minute-show that makes the brain both hurt and buzz...Confirmation is a show that lets nobody off the hook: not us, and definitely not Thorpe." The Guardian ★★★★

"Rachel Chavkin’s fast-moving, kinetic production offers us an absolutely compelling performance from a man who is fast becoming one of the most powerful performers in the UK." The Scotsman ★★★★

"Thorpe and director Rachel Chavkin energetically take a liberal Fringe audience to the edge of the abyss of belief and hang them over the side in a conversation for our times." The Independent ★★★★
