Tissue (Page)

'Tissue', by award-winning playwright Louise Page, is the story of Sally (Siobhan Brunwin), a young woman in her twenties, who is struggling to come to terms with the discovery, treatment and aftercare of breast cancer.

The play travels through various time zones and locations, to present various small scenes, with each of them forming a part of the larger picture. The short scenes depict touching moments of Sally's experiences during this time, dealing with family members, mum (Claire Anstead) and brother Simon (Jamey Benson) friends Fleur (Hannah Johnson) and Zoey (Kerri Millership) and lovers (David Smithet), as well as doctors (Peter Clyne), nurses (Nettie Hayes) and cool official voices dispensing useful medical knowledge which are interspersed with flashbacks of childhood games.

The play is an intimate, emotional drama which opens up vast areas of feeling beneath the surface of ordinary lives, tugging at the heart-strings and showing the effect on everyone caught up in the crisis.

On Tuesday 21st April, the Clavering Players performed 'Tissue' by Louise Page at the Cambridge Drama Festival and we are extremely proud to announce, that the team and production won first place. Congratulations to everyone involved in the production, and also congratulations to Siobhan who also won best actress; Doug who won best lighting; David who was nominated for best supporting actor and Jennifer Cummings for her input in helping us achieve a nomination for best costume. We also achieved a nomination for best stage presentation.
