Description

Cyclist Vee has no idea why she's woken up in hospital. Armed with only her medical notes and a surprise appearance on 24 Hours in A&E, she tries to piece together exactly what has happened to her. But the mystery she can't solve is why something so awful... has made her feel so fantastic! Inspired by a real-life cycling collision, this award-winning solo show by Scottish artist Lila Clements, is an uplifting story of hope and survival, made in partnership with female cycling club Velociposse. 'A genuinely exciting piece of theatre' **** (AYoungerTheatre.com).

Really enjoyed this solo play. Lila Clements narrative is realistic enough to transport you to the scenes she wants you to see with very few props. Well worth seeing.

Well portrayed and imaginatively staged. The issues arising from such an incident both short and longer term became easier to comprehend. Well worth seeing

Incredible effort for a solo show and very imaginative staging too. Highly recommend although I'm going to be careful next time I ride my bike.

Beautiful story telling funny at parts, emotionally engaging at parts. A must see for this years fringe.

Am definite must see. Look no hands is beautifully written and acted by the most engaging and mesmerising Lila Clements.
From a simple (real life) premise the play weaves her story round events known, unknown and dreamt.
The full range of emotion is exquisitely portrayed to the audience that can only empathise and support.
This play will be one of the highlights of Fringe 2022.

It’s very good and can bring to tears. Performance is top notch, story (based on real events) is very good, fantastic experience. One of the gems of this year’s fringe. Highly recommended.
