SYNOPSIS

Former colleagues Tom, Rob and Gary catch up at their local over a drink. Tom and Gary are on the mineral water, but Rob is having none of it – he’s too busy living life in the fast lane and keeping up appearances, hoping for a promotion. Gary and Tom are determined to point out what that might mean for their friend Rob. A play that explores the myths and issues around Type 2 diabetes and the importance of early diagnosis.

Did you know? 5.1% of the Australian population are living with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes. In the Bega Valley it is 5.6% of the population. There are half a million Australians who don’t even realise they have Type 2 diabetes. See this play – it may help someone you care about.

Following the play, there will be a Q&A on diabetes with health professionals. Playwright Alan Hopgood will also be in attendance at the performances on 1 August.

Part of South East Arts Arts’ SWELL Arts in Health program, the play is open to the public, and people with diabetes, carers and health professionals are particularly encouraged to attend.

Please note the play is not recommended for young children (mild sexual and alcohol references).
