Cumbria Crack

West Cumbrian woman’s tale of love, laughter and loos

Liz Richardson, Gutted

A sell-out show returns to its West Cumbria roots when Liz Richardson brings Gutted to Rosehill Theatre, Whitehaven, on Saturday 3 November.

This witty and compelling production, both co-created and performed by Liz, is her tale of a twenty-something living with inflammatory bowel disease.

Liz hails from Beckermet in West Cumbria and was a pupil at the former Wyndham School in Egremont, before going on to train as an actress. In 2006 she was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, which subsequently led to major surgery in 2011.

Playing about 15 different colourful characters, through Gutted she shares her real-life experiences to raise awareness of the disease through humour.

Liz says: “I decide to write and create a one-woman show about living with the illness and being in and out of hospitals all around the country.

“Many of my characters and interactions with doctors and nurses are based on my experiences and numerous stays in Whitehaven’s hospital.

“The show has been a huge success, with a sell-out at Manchester’s HOME theatre in 2016, a tour of UK hospitals, the Edinburgh Fringe and another run in Manchester.”

Join Liz on her journey of love, laughter and loos when she returns to West Cumbria.

Gutted will be performed by Liz Richardson at Rosehill Theatre from 8pm on 3 November. Tickets at £15 (£7.50 U26) are available from the box office on 01946 692422 or
