“Monday morning. I survived the weekend.”
A woman is gripped inside a vortex of her varying states of mind.
Honest, raw, and with sharply observed humour, this is an account of the woman’s struggle with her painful past, inadequate present, and her un- quenched desire to find happiness whilst living with a mental illness.
This vibrant, fast paced piece comes to life through frank, witty storytelling that tells us of music filled tube journeys, self obsessed friends and spiralling nights outs in this constantly evolving and sometimes stifling city of London.
This production aims to give a voice to those muted, those who need to be heard. Join us in this beautifully poetic and bold piece of uncompromising and urgent theatre.The show supports the Amy Winehouse Foundation –www.amywinehousefoundation.org
