Inter-acting’s participatory-led community group have been meeting every week for months. Inside the drop in style sessions, ritual games have been played and long-time friends have been made. The company have created an original story around the theme of mental health, specifically looking at the process of being diagnosed with a mental health condition. Now, it’s about time they shared it.

The show is a mix of physical theatre, naturalistic story telling, comedy, verbatim and playback improvisation. Join them as they showcase their first ever public performance. Some participants have never performed any theatre before and all we ask is that you come and show your support. This is a chance to join them as they surprise themselves as well as surprise everyone else.

Expect to think differently about thinking.

Warning, Truth!
