Timely Tale’ is staged in a reconstructed NHS waiting room, complete with sofas, carpets and toys from abandoned hospitals across the country. We are invited to take a seat and put virtual reality headsets on. The film is approximately six minutes long: transported into Penny’s bedroom, suspended from the chandelier, the audience steps into a confined world they cannot leave. One could be absorbed by the pile of clothes lying on the floor or the huge amount of pills Penny digs out of a drawer. About 10 years ago, Penny had a kidney and a pancreas transplant, and in March this year, her kidneys started failing again. What’s interesting is that she’s very cheerful and optimistic in her narrative. However, in order to stay alive, she has to take 50 tablets a day, 25 in the morning and 25 in the evening.
