We’re thrilled to announce that we’ll be working with The Conker Group in 2017 to produce and present their latest show Gutted. Created by The Conker Group’s director Tara Robinson with performer Liz Robertson, Gutted is a co-production with HOME, Manchester. First presented to a sell-out audience in May 2016, Gutted is a shameless story of love, laughter and lavatories, exploring Liz’s real-life experiences of living with ulcerative colitis.
Gutted has been supported by the Wellcome Trust People’s Award, IA: The Ileostomy & Internal Pouch Support Group*, and Arts Council England. and will be touring around hospitals in November 2016. Making Room will be working closely on producing the show for a national tour in 2017 (more details on tour booking soon).
As Making Room continues to grow in supporting artists and companies, we’re particularly excited about working with The Conker Group. Continuing to fulfil our mission of creating and supporting work that has an impact in society, we were drawn to Gutted for its human and humorous look at a long-term condition that affects 146,000 people in the UK. Gutted has already made brilliant steps at transforming and inspiring patients and relatives and we look forward to shaping the continued success of the show.
