She’s had more than 70,000 pricks of the medical kind. She’s not bankrupting the NHS.

And she can eat cake, a whole cake if she wants to.

In her one-woman show, Jade tells a warm, engaging and uplifting story with poetry and an original soundscape about families and learning to care for others better.

Jade said: “I want everyone to experience Pricks and be affected by it, in a good way.

“I want to be able to educate through entertainment about what type 1 diabetes actually is and I want the entire world to see it.

“I love seeing the reaction from the audience at shows and it is a great night out.

“It’s funny, but will make a lot of people cry, happy tears as it’s everything I’d like myself from a theatre show.”

Pricks is at Cast in Doncaster on Tuesday, May 28 at 7.15pm. To book tickets, call 01302 303 959 or go online at
