Kane Power Theatre presents


Mental tells a moving and personal story about one son’s relationship with his mother and her mental health.

At a time when mental health is increasingly making the headlines, yet still so many are unable to speak about their experience for fear of stigma, this show tells a personal story that will get people talking.

Winner of the very first Mental Health Fringe Award given by The Scotsman and The Mental Health Foundation, Mental is an exploration of the mind with music, anecdotes and medical notes.

★★★★ “What could be a difficult hour of issue-based theatre somehow manages to be an ultimately uplifting and positive celebration of human spirit, addressing important issues head-on without a hint of the worthy. That’s not an easy thing to do, but Kane Power Theatre have totally nailed it.” – The Reviews Hub

★★★★ “I highly recommend anyone goes to see it… It will deepen anybody’s understanding of mental health and truly nurtures the personal nature of illness and its effects on a family.” – North West End

“Fascinating and emotional… A solid debut performance for Kane and Kane Power Theatre.” – The State of the Arts

“Beneath its home-made aesthetic, this is a tightly scripted, smartly performed production inspired by his mother Kim’s experience of mental illness” – The Stage
