Rachel Stevie Helps LowryWe’re very excited for Rachel, by Stevie Helps, to be returning in a brand new special version for The Lowry Studio Theatre in Salford Quays in just under 2 weeks! We have been informed that tickets had completely SOLD OUT last week, so we have been in touch with the venue and they’ve kindly added an extra 30 tickets for sale. We know half of these have already been snatched up, so book your tickets now while you can! Unfortunately we won’t be able to squish our stage any further to fit everyone in.

Characters in the play deal with my experiences with mental health and psychiatric hospitals, and how I experienced people with mental health in my own mental health states. This is all woven into the play. It’s not all P.C. – Stevie Helps, Writer/Director
