I’m falling between the cracks in myself, and I don’t know how to crawl back out…

 

This new powerful piece of theatre explores the profound struggle individuals with mental illness face on

a daily basis in Ireland today. The darkly comical and deeply moving play tells how an unsuccessful

suicide attempt leaves young Leanne Dowd estranged and attempting to pick up the pieces of a life still

shattered by mental illness.

 

‘Brave, daring and innovative…has a virtuoso flair and arresting boldness. A substantial piece of

theatre’  Peter Hughes, Northern Standard 

 

'Went to see this amazing play last night! I have to say it was brilliant! It portrays a young

person’s struggle with their mental health and demonstrates how those around also struggle to

understand.’  Bairbre Kelly, Counsellor and Psychotherapist
