Ancient Egypt: wandering womb theory first recorded.

1518: hundreds of people dance uncontrollably on the streets of Strasbourg.

1877: Dr Jean-Martin Charcot gives demonstrations of hypnosis on female “hysterics” in Paris. 2019: an award-winning theatre company write this blurb.

2019: We try and put all of this in to a show.

Right now: you read this and understand implicitly that it won’t just be a group of people screaming in a dark room for an hour. You sense it’s an exploration of medical and theatrical storytelling that transcends time. You feel a sensation that can only be described as an uncontrollable urge. You book your ticket.
