Throat clenches. Palm sweats. Vision tunnels. Breath shallows. Stomach knots. We all share a nervous system designed to respond to crisis in a certain way. But what happens when your professional duty requires you to run towards the scene of the horror, at a time when everyone else is running away?

First Response has been created and performed by individuals who worked the front lines of some of the most difficult experiences of The Troubles. What secrets do these men and women hold in their physiology, and how can their story help us understand ourselves and the society we live in today?

Supported by an ensemble from University of Ulster drama.
