I don’t know about you but I’ve taken to asking for a ‘double-dip’ lottery ticket since yesterday’s Autumn Statement.
Never has so much hinged on four new trams in Sheffield, who would have thought? But as soft rock band Supertramp famously said in “Put On Your Old Brown Shoes”: ”We’ve got to get away, get away. Got to move on…’ and ‘Goodbye rain and depression.’ Here’s a little of that song on youtube.
So, that’s just the sort of prompt to point you in the direction of Theatre of Debate (Y-Touring’s) new play ‘Dayglo’ written by the fabulous Abi Brown (see an earlier blog) which looks at pharmacogenetics. You can find more out about the play here including a little peek into one of the workshops they held when they were developing the play. It’s just about to tour schools at the moment but Y-Touring and supporters usually hold several performances of these plays for us adults. As and when I hear about them, I’ll post details on the blog. Great poster as well, as you can see here.
Also wanted to share with you this article that my good friend and writer, Sophie Petit-Zeman, has written in today’s Guardian about how stroke patients and clinicians used the excellent James Lind Alliance (JLA) ‘priority-setting partnerships’ to identify the research questions that matter to those at the sharp end of stroke care.
JLA are at the top of my Billboard, that’s all I’ll say.
