“Inherently hopeful”: White Nurse

JustOut Theatre is to mark its debut Fringe season with two shows at Buxton, White Nurse and Home.

White Nurse is a show about “love, addiction and the internal struggle”. It focuses on emotional and physical abuse in relationships and the way young women are manipulated into dependency. Although the play tackles deep issues, JustOut says the play is “inherently hopeful, showing that the victims of domestic abuse need not be trapped in the cycle forever”.

The cast comprises Aisling Lally, Mitchell Siddons and Rebecca McGreevy. Writer and producer is Abby Coppard and Keira MacAlister directs.

White Nurse runs at the Underground Arts Centre, Buxton on Monday and Tuesday, 8 and 9 July at 9PM and Wednesday 10 July at 5:45PM.

Home features a boy and a girl who are determined to give their three-month-old baby the best possible chance in life. They try to balance the stress of school, work and looking after a baby in a teenage relationship and it does not take long for cracks to emerge in their idealistic plans.

The cast features Lotty Holder, Logan Jones and Meg Ryder. Ben Wilson directs Gabriel Stewart’s Home which will be performed Underground at the Old Clubhouse, Buxton on Monday 15 and Tuesday 16 July at 1PM and Wednesday 17 and Thursday 18 July at 5:30PM.
