HAPPYMINDS HOSPITAL ON TOUR

Written by NewLiveTheatre on . Posted in Latest News, Press, Shows

Stevie Helps Theatre Productions and New Live Theatre Company are pleased to announce dates for a regional tour of ‘Happyminds Hospital’, the latest incarnation of Writer/Director Stevie Helps’ mental health production.

Happyminds Hospital by Stevie Helps

‘Happyminds Hospital’ is the latest incarnation of Stevie Helps’ 5* production which has been developing since 2015. Previous carnations include: Dragged Up, Borderline Electra, Mind’s A Labyrinth and RACHEL. Happyminds Hospital is based on the authors own experiences about the downside of mental health and psychiatric hospitals. The unconventional play has ADHD, BI POLAR and a BORDERLINE PERSONALITY DISORDER of its very own.

Everything in Rachel’s life is crumbling. She has suffered a whirlwind of abuse, but now is the abused becoming the abuser? With a villainous Father and a new lovable love interest, can she break free from her prison of torment, or will she forever remain a pawn in a squiggly wiggly game of oopsies?

Come experience Rachel, and 13 other exciting characters, in this winding tale of drama, plunging deep into melodrama, surrealism… and realism in a unique piece of Theatre.

Borderline Electra Manchester Play

BOOK QUICKLY FOR 21 APRIL – LIMITED TICKETS

New Live Theatre Company are set to première their latest production ‘Borderline Electra’ this April, written and directed by the company’s Co-Artistic Director Stevie Helps, at the Hope Mill Theatre – the newest and hottest venue on the Manchester theatre scene. The provoking play is an almost completely re-envisioned adaptation of Helps’ ‘Dragged Up’, which caused a stir at its previews last year for the plays controversial content and non-conformist theatrical styles. Uniquely, the play is premièring with not one, but two different casts who will each perform the play, which features an incestuous relationship between a father and his adult daughter who suffers with a Borderline Personality Disorder. The play will also feature live music by musician Thurston Thomson.

Tickets for each show are £8 or £12 for both performances.
Optional donation:
If you book £10 tickets (or £14 for both performances), £2 from every ticket sold will be split between the charities Mind and RSPCA

WHAT IS BORDERLINE ELECTRA ABOUT?

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. 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 actions, revenge, incest… a family, and their goldfish, torn apart. This is no ordinary story.
