Cracks

A powerful piece of devised theatre from An Tain Arts Centre’s Company-In-Residence exploring the issue of mental illness in Ireland.I’m falling between the cracks in myself, and I don’t know how to crawl back out…

Quintessence Theatre use their innovative physical ensemble story-telling techniques mingled with multi-media platforms of film and music to poignantly explore the profound struggle individuals with mental illness face on a daily basis in Ireland today.

In this darkly comical and deeply moving new play an unsuccessful suicide attempt leaves young Leanne Dowd estranged and attempting to pick up the pieces of a life still shattered by mental illness. Devised by the company and directed by Anna Simpson, a Creative Associate of the Pleasance and Practitioner with the Globe, London, this brand new work seeks to expose the lived experience of battling a severe mental illness in an inefficient and unsympathetic system through the eyes of one young woman.
