THE BURGUNDY BOY
We are in the process of developing a new show, provisionally called "The Burgundy Boy". The show will be dealing with identity, depression and suicide, amongst other things. The show has been inspired by co-artistic director Jake Hassam's own struggle with, and continuing triumph over, such obstacles. We want it to be an anthology piece that shares a number of real stories, mixed up together with some dreams and a live psychedelic soundtrack. We are asking anyone who feels comfortable sharing their own experiences of depression or mental health problems to get in touch. We want the show to be a positive, empowering piece of theatre that proves that although reality can be a very difficult place to be, our problems existing within it can be a gift as much as a curse. Maybe we're all a little bit "mental". Maybe it's reality that's the problem. Whatever way you look at it, we want to try and find a healthy and happy way that everyone can exist and come to terms with their own identity. This is a big and complex project, and if you think you have something to say or share that can help us we would really like to here from you.
