Description

One man’s journey to sanity via a very bad idea. Fleeing suicidal thoughts and the obvious psychiatrist, in 2018 Matt booked himself into the single greatest arts festival on the planet. It’s not recommended by NICE. A musician with no theatrical experience found himself performing nightly with no preparation and no idea what he was doing. Weaving tales of how he got to and came back from the brink of suicide, this is the path taken from breakdown to talking publicly. The show moves between a mix of heartfelt stories, self-deprecating humour and original songs.
