After sell out seasons, awards and critical acclaim, Chapman Tripp winning actress and creator Renee Lyons brings her solo show Nick: An Accidental Hero to Melbourne Fringe. An unstoppable tour de force of talent and imagination, and a testament to the strength of the human spirit, Lyons has performed the show to critical acclaim throughout New Zealand and Edinburgh.

'Belly laughs a'plenty, moments of true beauty, Nick: An Accidental Hero is the enormously affecting and heartbreakingly honest story of New Zealand sportsman, adrenalin junkie and all-round wild man Nick Chisholm. Nick's life ground to a halt when he was struck by a major stroke at the age of 27. He was left with a condition called "locked in syndrome" - known to those who have experienced it as "pure hell".

Nick's unexpected recovery has baffled the medical profession, and the play explores his fierce determination, the many characters that populate his life, and the unlikely road to true love.
