Moving and provocative new drama that opens a window to a closed world.
Hearing Things explores the dilemmas of psychiatry from the points of view of patients, relatives and staff.
Based on experiences of psychiatrists and patients, the ‘healthy’ and the ‘ill’, looking at how and if people heal and recover inside institutions.
For the past three years, Playing ON has been collaborating with psychiatrists, other staff and patients, drawing together the stories of those receiving and providing mental health care. Hearing Things is the result of that process.
Playing ON make quality theatre with communities whose voices are seldom heard. They work in a variety of settings, generating theatre from improvisations inspired by real life experiences.
This piece is written by Philip Osment.
