“Who would have thought I would end up like this?” ...is the powerful opening line in So u think I’m crazy? - a therapeutic theatrical production by Know My Mind.
The emotive drama explores the issues surrounding the mental health system in Britain today, told through the eyes of a young black man. Using rap, poetry, dance and music the multi-sensory experience takes the audience through the streets of London to the secure wing of a psychiatric hospital.
After the performance, a panel of Know My Mind representatives and other Mental Health professionals facilitate a discussion with audience participation.
Since its humble beginnings in 2014, the stage play has been featured in theatre houses and events across the UK gathering much attention from the media, performing arts community and organisations such as Mind. The play has also received rave reviews and endorsements from dignitaries, including the Mayor of Croydon and professionals from the Royal College of Psychiatry.
