A Poke in the Eye is the part autobiographical, part fiction, part sexy new comedy written by partially-sighted actress Georgie Morrell.
One woman. One eye. And her (sort of) blind life…
Do your other senses really get stronger? Is it wrong to crack onto your doctor? Can I make fun of disabled people because I am disabled? Will I get a new eye that shoots lasers?
Just some of the many questions our heroine answers whilst telling us how she went blind but now she can see… literally. Recounting stories of doctors, sexual fantasies, binge drinking, (sometime all at the same time) family dramas and drug use. We hear a unique account of what it is to face inevitable blindness with her very own brand of humour. LOL! Being disabled is her excuse to do exactly what she wants, say what she wants and live her one eyed life as she wants.
