Description

Sam is ill. In the grip of a depressive episode he is admitted to an adolescents psychiatric ward. There he meets Mags, an eccentric, witty, but deeply troubled girl on the brink of adulthood. Together they struggle on through the daily challenges of living with severe mental illness, and find that sometimes, in the darkest of times, the most touching of relationships can be formed. This new writing will leave you laughing, crying and pondering about the things that make a life worth living.

I was blown away by this show, for everyone out there debating what to see at the fringe this is a MUST. Funny and sad and with great acting it was a stand out from everything I saw this year.

The personal experiences are clear, and they weave into the narrative well enough. The major problem...
