"Kitty, my hands have disappeared. Pardon?"

Sherman Theatre/Theatr y Sherman, Royal Exchange Theatre & Theatre by the Lake

By Alan Harris
Director Liz Stevenson

Every Wednesday evening, Jimmy calls Kitty. For precisely nine minutes. At 1.20 a minute.

Jimmy is 36, lives with his mum and works at Newport's only drive-through doughnut restaurant. Kitty is a phone sex worker living in the granny flat of a topiary enthusiast. Things were looking up for Jimmy when he met Kitty for the first time, but then he loses his job at the drive-in and starts to feel a strange tingling in his fingers. Kitty's not a psychologist yet, but she has some theories about why Jimmy has started to disappear. With Kitty giving some life-changing advice and Jimmy trying to reconcile himself to eventual invisibility, this unlikely duo succeeds in turning each other's world upside down.

From the writer of Love, Lies & Taxidermy this Welsh Premiere of How My Light Is Spent is a funny, hopeful play about loneliness, longing and being left behind.
