Look, No Hands

LOOK, NO HANDS was selected for the 2021 National Partnership Award with the Pleasance Theatre and Pitlochry Festival Theatre and has been also supported by Arts Council England. We completed a live run at the Pleasance London in August 2021, streamed on Edinburgh Fringe Player and completed a 6 week run on global streaming platform, Stream.Theatre. This year, the show is part of the Edinburgh Fringe Programme at Summerhall 3-28th August 4.30pm.

Inspired by a real life cycling collision Lila experienced back in 2010, this play explores the female cycling experience, PTSD, the phenomenon known as Post Traumatic Growth, and has been made in partnership with female cycling club Velociposse. While this play centres around a road trauma, ultimately it’s an uplifting story of hope and survival for our times.

★★★★ “Look, No Hands makes for a genuinely exciting piece of theatre.” (A Younger Theatre)

★★★★ “This piece incites us to ask questions of ourselves, assess how we live our lives now, how we can make things better and regain our freedom, before we find ourselves forced to make the changes.” (West End Best Friend)

★★★★ “An inspiring and uplifting play that celebrates human endurance in the wake of tragedy. It is a reminder that we are all capable of more than we think.” (Love London Love Culture)

★★★ “an inspirational tale” (Pocketsize Theatre)

“Clements is a skilful and sympathetic raconteur neatly pointing out that one of the positive outcomes of the accident is the very play that we are watching.” (My Theatre Mates)
