This is a picture of Jess Thom – a white woman with curly brown hair sitting in her wheelchair in front of some metallic green shop shutters on a sunny afternoon. Jess is smiling at the camera and has her hands together in her lap. She is wearing a black tracksuit with a colourful red cherry repeat print and black trainers.

Touretteshero – Burnt Out In Biscuit Land

Burnt Out In Biscuit Land is the follow up to Touretteshero’s smash hit Backstage In Biscuit Land. Almost a decade on, we catch up with Jess Thom and Jess Mabel Jones (AKA Chopin) as they grapple with their changing impairments, identities, and politics.

At a time when the world is deep in chaos, the neurodiverse inhabitants of Biscuit Land are making more sense than ever before. Expect comedy, storytelling, disabled oracles, lampposts, Independent living, despotic cats, and of course…biscuits!
