Getting Better Slowly

Adam Pownall presents 
Getting Better Slowly 

When Guillain Barré Syndrome affected Adam Pownall it caused full paralysis within days. Getting Better Slowly tells his inspiring story of recovery through new writing, sound and movement. Funny, moving, and honest, Adam’s journey through illness and rehabilitation – including months re-learning how to walk and talk – invites audiences to consider how they would deal with an unexpected illness or accident, and explores how it feels when your closest relationship is with the illness that’s holding you back.
