A painful - and painfully funny - play about being very young and in love - and coping with serious illness at the same time.
Rachel and Peter are seventeen.
They have been going out for six months.
It's love's young dream.
Then Rachel gets ill - seriously ill.
She doesn't want her mum to fuss; she doesn't want Alice to pretend she's her best friend; and she certainly doesn't want Alice's boyfriend telling bad jokes at her bedside.
The only person she wants is Peter, but Peter doesn't know what it is that he wants.
<i>When You Cure Me</i> premiered at the Bush Theatre, London, in 2005.
'In one of the year's finest pieces of new writing... a compassionate, gripping portrait of a fledgling relationship that is asked to bear more than many well-established marriages' <i>Evening Standard</i>
'painstakingly honest... acutely observant of the petty rivalries and jealousies that sickness provokes' <i>Guardian</i>
'[has] a merciless precision... a brave piece of writing that, with its damaged and angry heroine, unflinchingly shows us not a vision of saintly suffering, but a far more engagingly human struggle for survival' <i> The Times</i>
