Space for Sharing
Space for Sharing is a play commissioned by Professor Peter Bath, University of Sheffield. The collaboration between Sheffield researchers and Dead Earnest has resulted in a powerful and memorable drama telling the stories of five fictional women diagnosed with breast cancer who gain support from an online health forum. The ideas and characters take inspiration from the Breast Cancer Care online health forum. The charity has endorsed the play as an authentic portrayal of their online health forum.
The play has been shown in London and Sheffield numerous times and reached audiences of 800+ people to great acclaim.

I was moved by the play; it was very powerful and thought-provoking. I have already started to mention online forums to new patients.
