Kane Power Theatre
Mental is an exploration of the mind with music, anecdotes and medical notes, telling the moving and personal story of one son’s relationship with his bipolar mother.
Winner of the first ever Mental Health Fringe Award, presented by the Mental Health Foundation in August 2017, it was chosen by a judging panel of leading playwrights, critics and programmers as the most compelling show about mental health at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe. We are delighted to invite Kane Power Theatre back to Scotland for a four-night run at the Tron Theatre, in association with Mayfesto.
Friday’s performance will be followed by an after show discussion between Kane and Andrew Eaton-Lewis from SMHAF, exploring the themes explored in the show.
