Mental Health is often marginalised and kept behind closed doors. S.A.D brings it into the light without stigma; a show full of laughter, tears, truth and most importantly of all hope and healing.
S.A.D is a journey through the Seasons of Mental Illness. The foreboding Autumn of History and Trauma, the sometimes isolating and cold Winter of Symptoms, the hopeful Spring that is Recognition and Diagnosis and finally into the beautiful warmth of the Summer of Healing and Acceptance.
Experience a show like no other, that meets the demons that we all face head on and rather than doing so with anger and fear, instead embraces them with understanding.
The audience is guided through the colourful kaleidoscope story by the gentle and humorous “Distracto Clown”, seeking to lead them through sometimes dark and often taboo issues in a light and most importantly safe environment.
Content Warning: This show explores themes of mental illness (PTSD, depression and anxiety), grooming, childhood abuse, toxic masculinity, addiction and trauma.
