lowry-minds-a-labyrinth-choice4Dragged Through The Labyrinth Mind of A Borderline Personality… Kicking and Screaming it’s Way to The Lowry

When his wife goes missing, Stuart informs his daughter (Rachel) that she has committed suicide. Elliott first meets Rachel in her local pub, where he finds her alone and drunkenly singing her heart out on a table top to ‘Last Christmas’ – in April… like ‘a young Yoko Ono’. When her father arrives to pull her down, Elliot jumps to defend her. But all is not what it seems. This family must prepare themselves for the consequences of their ill-advised decisions…

EXCLUSIVE & NEW FOR LOWRY: The Lowry performance will feature THREE RACHELS!

Likened to Sarah Kane, Martin McDonagh… and Eastenders at its darkest hour, Stevie Helps’ ‘Mind’s A Labyrinth’ is a unique experience which doesn’t follow usual theatrical conventions. This play stands out from the rest, not only in story and taboo subject matters, but also in terms of directorial style and authorial voice. The play is a hard-hitting exploration into the mind of one Borderline Personality sufferer and her traumatic family. The play with a personality disorder of its very own.

“A fabulous piece of work” – north west end

New Live Theatre Company premièred their hard-hitting production ‘Borderline Electra‘ in April 2016, written and directed by New Live Theatre’s Co-Artistic Director and Manchester Hub Drama’s Co-Founder and Acting Coach Stevie Helps. After the production’s début, the play is set to return under its new title ‘Mind’s A Labyrinth’. The excitingly provoking production explores the troubled life and relationships of the central character (Rachel) who suffers with a Borderline Personality Disorder.
