A visually inventive insight into mental health and the impact it can have on a family.
Josh finds the outside world a fascinating and frightening place. At a time when he is most vulnerable, a room of forgotten things quickly becomes the perfect place for him to escape reality.
His family make a desperate attempt to help him realise there is more to life than photos on a shelf and postcards under the door.
This is an honest and uplifting show about fear and the impact our decisions have on those we care about, told through mesmerising movement, poetic text and visual inventiveness.
“Thoughtful and fresh, the young company’s well-structured show has a subtly delivered but somewhat simple message of mental health awareness… Imaginatively directed.” – The Scotsman
★★★★ “This is a slick and thoughtful piece, using the performers’ skill and the medium of physical theatre to highlight an issue that will affect as many as one in three people in their lifetimes.” – Fringe Guru
