In the second year of the Covid-19 pandemic, thoughts turn to new variants, vaccine safety, and hopes for things to return to the way they were. But for the most vulnerable amongst us, will it all be too little too late? Witty and compelling, Vulnerable is Cheyenne Alexandria Phillips' autobiographical narrative of coping with cancelled freelance gigs and decimated income in a global pandemic, while trying not to let her congenital heart disease get in the way. Taking us through accounts of an unconventional childhood and the struggle to reduce her medical risk, Cheyenne invites us to consider our collective efforts, or lack thereof, in keeping each other safe. Directed and dramaturged by Huzir Sulaiman, with sound design by Shah Tahir, Checkpoint Theatre's latest 8-part podcast is personal history in the making, upending our notions of what it truly means to be courageous.
