This Is A Northern Stage Hire

Book now  Reviews  Access

 Northern Pride proudly present My Mental Breakdown, a non-traditional musical which follows the story of a young man battling with his mental health and the impact this has on his mother and boyfriend. He struggles to express his feelings in a world where “men don't cry,” and social stigma causes him to isolate himself from his loved ones. Sometimes when you're alone with only your thoughts to keep you company, they are not your best friends.

Follow a dark, emotional score, delving deep into the mind of a young man suffering with a mental illness.

This performance is fully supported by Northern Pride in collaboration with Mental Health Awareness Week 2019. All profits will go to CALM (registered charity no. 1110621) and Northern Pride (registered charity no. 1141053).
