It's 7.03 p.m. on the front line of the NHS ambulance service. Sylvia is on her last shift; Lisa is on her first.

The two women patrol the city streets, encountering the full spectrum of human experience.

The Kindness of Strangers is an immersive journey into the world of the paramedic, where the audience sit in the back of a moving ambulance and witness all that comes with a twelve-hour-long nightshift.

A co-production between curious directive and the Norfolk and Norwich Festival, with support from the Wellcome Trust, The Kindness of Strangers premiered in May 2013 before going on to tour the United Kingdom in 2014.
