This Being Human
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Born sixty years ago into the grief of betrayal and abandonment and raised in the repressive chaos of alcoholism, Sheila internalised a deep-seated sense of loss and emptiness. From this beginning, an unconscious quest was set into motion. Audacious, desperate and humorous, Sheilas poignant and insightful stories reveal her wrestling with the angels and demons of food, family, religion, marriages and parenting a son with severe disabilities. Demonstrating an uncompromising devotion to find happiness, deep meaning and her own true voice, Sheila engages the audience to consider all that is required to fully embrace This Being Human.
