"Funny, poignant and fascinating! 

Four great performances"

~ Elaine Tyler Hall, ENO, staff director

Written by Matt Roberts

Directed by Tom Stabb

"Insensible" starts with the demise of a belovéd pet, ends in unavoidable ruin and the middle is only the beginning when dissecting the fascinating life of Dr. William Morton and his endeavours to patent the world's first anaesthetic.

With a cast of four in this one-room situation comedy drama, Middle-Weight Theatre Company use thoroughly researched and historically accurate events (with only a hint of fiction), to provide a unique and entertaining perspective of 'what we think we know'.


"There is a lot of intelligence and heart behind this farcical drawing room drama.

 The members of Middle-Weight Theatre Company give a very slick and polished performance - with the sort of precision which is needed to make farce light up on stage."

~ Claire Smith, The Scotsman
