1982, an immigrant nurse tries to get through the day without losing her morality. Or her perm.
The world of nursing is tough. Overworked, underpaid and facing life and death every day. But where would we be without them?
Do I Look Like I Care? Is a medical comedy with a feminist edge about the heart and hilarity of the everyday woman.
Think Fleabag meets Call the Midwife, with big hair.
Developed through the Victorian College of the Arts: Master in Writing for Performance, Do I Look Like I Care?
Is the debut play from returning Perth performer and writer-to-watch Daisy Coyle. Based on her mother’s 40-year nursing career, this is a love letter to those in the business of care. Coyle states, “My intention is to share a laugh with audiences, after the year we’ve all shared I truly believe that to share a laugh and a collective sense of joy in the same room together would lift our spirits. Because, after all, laughter is the best medicine”
Presented at the State Theatre Centre in Rehearsal Room 1 on the 15th-19th of January at 8pm. Tickets available at Fringe World and Perth Theatre Trust websites and outlets.
