"I've had over 70,000 pricks… Of the medical kind. This is my chance to set the record straight about Type 1 diabetics like me. Despite what people say, I'm not bankrupting the NHS. And I can eat cake – a whole bloody cake – if I want to. Join me as I learn to cope with the ups and downs of dealing with a lot of pricks."


This urgent, funny new show blends warmly engaging storytelling withpoetry and an original soundscape. It tells a surprisingly moving and uplifting story about families and learning to care for each other better.

“It’s entertaining; it has humour and pathos, some anguish, some anger and not a little sadness but, ultimately, positivity and happiness.” – BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE

"Warmth and humanity" - THE STAGE

"Pricks is a tour-de-force of emotion and a vital piece of a informative theatre. It demands understanding and radiates warmth." - THE LIST

All you need is a camera, an internet connection and something to say.

Last year, 34% of young people voted YouTuber as their top career choice. Claire was intrigued and decided to have a go. Part documentary, part live performance, part parody, part desperate as f*ck, Claire does everything she can to entertain her online audience, while remaining 100% totally authentically real.

Examining validation, confession and the cost of sharing, See-Through is an edited, unedited, live, pre-recorded, reality show that invites you to see behind the camera.
