Over the Wall Picking Apples

13th July 2019 at 4:30 pm - 5:45 pm

£6 – £9

Happily married with a lovely house on the Somerset Levels, Richard could have settled down to life as a withy weaver, cider maker or llama farmer. But then the fish tank started singing to him – the same song over and over, day after day. It was enough to drive him mad.
This is the story of Richard’s response to all this: his admission into the mental health service, a diagnosis of bipolar disorder, medication (the highs…the lows) and making sense of a lifetime lived over the wall picking apples. Join Richard on his emotional roller-coaster as he squares up to the frightening, the furious and the funny sides of mad. “This is a brilliantly written and performed show, that gets to the heart of so many aspects of mental health” Disability Arts Online

Optional Q&A following the Performance.
