Even though i am known for being a spoken word poet i actually got my start in drama and have developed an interest in writing plays. In november last year an idea started to germinate. I was in a hospital and most of the people on the ward were women. At the time i was also reading a book about the history of women and the mental health system dating back to the early 1700s. I developed an interest in staging the medicalisation and pathologising of women through theatre. So i started writing. The work is a series of monologues five women have with an off stage psychologist – who is male. The first draft is done. I am currently reworking it. What i need is you!!! I intend to post snippets of the. Work on tumblr so people can get an idea of what ive written and register their interest in participating in production.
Also my sincere apologies if youve requested lyrics stories or anything else from me ive been battling mental health difficulties and writing this beast along with other things.
