How can we nurture our collective sanity?

Bouncing on a pilates ball in the Land of Lounge Room, a recovering mum and love-struck, sleep-deprived teat is desperate to soothe her baby. Unable to reach her sister, who wrestles with a ‘cataract’ on what Shakespeare calls the ‘mind’s eye’, she stitches together a pillow-book of tales told through poetry and performance.

Written & Performed by Skye Loneragan. Music by Mairi Campbell.

Directorial eyes: Kath Burlinson & Stewart Ennis.

Choreographic support: Emma Jayne Park.

Thanks to producer Andrew Eaton-Lewis.

Presented in in association with the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival & The Mental Health Foundation

“Loneragan is such a gifted and engaging performer, both in words and movement, that the quiet integrity of her unadorned staging comes to seem like a gift; in a show that talks of madness, but also of how women’s lives, honestly described, always tend to defy the norms of our culture – including our ideas of sanity and exactly what it might look like.”

Joyce McMillan, Scotsman
