Thursday October 10th at St. Patrick’s University Hospital, James St, Dublin 8 at 6.30pm (No booking required, donations welcome on the night)
Three people on stage, happy, successful, gorgeous!!! But there’s one thing they have in common. Each of these people has now or at some time in their lives experienced the torment of mental health problems.
This “happy play about being sad” sets out to take an irreverent and rollicking look at the Irish approach to mental health using the authentic material of the cast’s real life experiences. Actress Mary McEvoy, comedian John Moynes and broadcaster Dil Wickremasinghe team up to share their stories of personal experience with a mental health problem in a mixture of stories, comedy sketches and songs to de-mystify, debunk and ultimately have a laugh with what really goes on inside our heads.
Box of Frogs is directed by Caroline FitzGerald and written by Isobel Mahon in collaboration with cast members Mary McEvoy, John Moynes and Dil Wickremasinghe.
