Cracks

Presented by Quinntessence Theatre Company

A powerful piece of devised theatre from An Tain Arts Centre’s Company-In-Residence exploring the issue of mental illness in Ireland.

I’m falling between the cracks in myself, and I don’t know how to crawl back out…

Quintessence Theatre use their innovative physical ensemble story-telling techniques mingled with multi-media platforms of film and music to poignantly explore the profound struggle individuals with mental illness face on a daily basis in Ireland today.

In this darkly comical and deeply moving new play an unsuccessful suicide attempt leaves young Leanne Dowd estranged and attempting to pick up the pieces of a life still shattered by mental illness.

'Went to see this amazing play last night! I have to say it was brilliant! It portrays a young persons struggle with their mental health and demonstrates how those around also struggle to understand.’  Bairbre Kelly, Counsellor and Psychotherapist.
