21 June - 1 July
Can you truly ever understand madness and what makes a person ‘mad’? Alice is a production that aims to explore the theme of mental health through an adaptation of a children’s book but for an adult audience. The piece uses Lewis Caroll’s absurdism and surrealism to discuss and educate about the way in which mental health problems may present themselves and whether a person who is deemed ‘crazy’ is truly understood by doctors and society. The piece contains some masked political comments but in a manner which is light hearted at times and gruelling at others.
BACK TO WHERE
A script by Colin James based on improvisations by Hannah Hawkins and Vincent Andriano.
Will & Jane are a young married couple from different backgrounds, struggling to deal with the pressures put on them by their parent’s generation and the modern values of their Millennial piers. Will has arranged a surprise camping trip to an isolated spot in the Welsh countryside so they can get away from the distractions of work and technology. Unfortunately they have left the bag with all their food, water, matches and torch in their car which is now an hour’s hike away. With the sun going down and no safe way to get back to the car they decide to settle in for a cold and hungry night of trying to fix their relationship.
