PERFORMANCE: World Mental Health Day Monologues
We were invited to take part in #ThriveFest for World Mental Health day this year, organised by Thrive Edinburgh.
Strange Town creative director Steve Small commissioned six emerging playwrights to write a monologue about the effects of the lockdown on young people aged 16-25. Working alongside Media Education and six young actors from Strange Town Young Company the results are moving, quirky and uplifting.
