Insensible
  • Edinburgh Fringe

If you could eradicate the world of pain, what would be your price? A newly written comedy drama set in 1860s Boston, Massachusetts, USA. Based upon the true events from the life of Dr William Morton and his obsession to patent the world's first pain relief solution, reluctantly yet loyally assisted by his young British protege Nathaniel Jameson, whilst dutifully supported by his wife Elizabeth and their house-maid Mary. The debate emerges, befitting morality, decency and legacy; threatening the deterioration of family and friendship when desire for recognition and fortune take precedence.
