Kane Power Theatre presents


Winner of the first Mental Health Fringe Award, presented by the Mental Health Foundation at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe, 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.

An exploration of the mind with music, anecdotes and medical notes.

Written by Alice Lamb, Kane Power, Kim Power and Tid
Directed by Tid
Associate Director: Alice Lamb
Designed by Ruby Spencer
Musical Direction by Peter Reynolds
Collaborators: Chris Farsh, Tom England, Kim Power

Note: Contains some strong language.
