Coagulation explores the connection between mental health conditions and the impact on the blood coursing through our body – fear and mental stress can literally cause our blood clots.

Diversion reveals the magnitude of experiencing a stroke whilst camping in the Daintree Rainforest and how this began a long complex journey audiences will resonate with.

Liability: A curious side effect of Gretel’s stroke is that she has become an impulse shopper. One evening she brought a handbag and a dog costume and a family holiday to New Zealand. Throw in an apple, 13 bags (some that get lost) and New Zealand’s biosecurity agents and you have a recipe for hilarity.
