by Isabelle Kabban 


5th & 6th July 



John Thaw Studio 



'My mum threw a trifle at my best friend and that's when I first thought something was probably wrong.'

A mother. A daughter. An hour. A bond. Questions. Answers. Trifle. Tides. Refresh. Restore. Release.

Critically acclaimed SpeakUp Theatre present a searingly honest and personal one-woman show investigating the complexities of loving someone with mental illness. A moving, funny and relatable insight into how it feels to care for someone who can't always show that they care for you.

LOVE (Watching Madness) was developed with the John Thaw Initiative in 2018, and will be performing at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2019 (Pleasance Courtyard) in association with The Actors Centre.



Narrator Isabelle Kabban



Directed by Ruth Anna Phillips
