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.
