SKYE LONERAGAN

Passionate about curiosity as a kind of currency, both in terms of value and exchange, Skye Loneragan is an award-winning writer/performer whose work spans theatre, poetry and live art.

Her first solo work Cracked, (directed by Zinnie Harris), won an Edinburgh Fringe First award, her seventh and most recent, Though This Be Madness was performed as part of the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival in May 2018 and will be touring in Spring 2020.

Though This Be Madness

An online version of Though This Be Madness, which was to have toured Scotland as part of this year’s SMHAF will be appearing this May. A theatre show set in a lounge room, Though This Be Madness features a recovering mum who is attempting to tell you many tales of sisterhood struggles with mental health. The show is now undergoing an experimental re-framing – supported by SMHAF – to see how it can be shared with other lounge rooms, live online. Skye will be sharing quirky, questioning process-bites along the way via SMHAF’s website.
