Regular groups

Flippin’Mental Theatre are hoping to start their first drama group for people with lived experience of mental health difficulties and distress in 2021. Drama for the Mind is a group to support people to have better mental wellbeing through drama. The group is currently meeting once a week online and that we will be running a face-to-face drama group when the restrictions have been lifted.

You can check out their series of monologues, A Step in the Dark, written and performed over lockdown, below:

We are happy to take new referrals for when the restrictions lift. 

Cultivating Mad Cow

Kathryn has adapted her memoir, Cultivating Madcow, into a one-woman theatre piece. In the spring of 2020 Kathryn worked with 6 people with lived experience of mental ill-health and an interest in the theatre to help develop the play. 

Suicide Monologues

This theatre piece, based on a book by Kathryn of the same name, is made up of 10-12 stories under the theme of suicide. It was performed by actors online in 2020 as part of Sheffield’s Festival of the Mind.
