We’re excited that for one week only we’re able to share with you a recording of Adam Pownall’s Getting Better Slowly, an inspiring story of illness and recovery.

Adam Pownall woke up to find his body was slowly shutting down. Unable to walk, talk or blink and nobody knew why…

When Guillain Barré Syndrome affected Adam it caused paralysis within days. Getting Better Slowly tells his story of confronting illness through new writing, sound and movement.

This performance of Getting Better Slowly was filmed at Lincoln Drill Hall on 26 February 2017. The stream is raising money for GAIN, a charity which helps people understand and manage acute and chronic variants of Guillain Barré Syndrome, raises awareness, and promotes clinical and non-clinical research into these conditions.
