At a time when mental health is increasingly making the headlines, yet still so many are unable to speak about their experience for fear of stigma, this show attempts to tell a personal story that will get people talking.

Hi, I’m Kane, and this show is about me and my mum, and her mental health. I want you to watch this show and feel like you’ve come and had a chat with an old friend. I really don’t want this show to be pretentious, and neither does she, but this is difficult. What is pretentious for one person, is everyday for another. I remember when I thought avocados were pretentious. The show has live music which I make myself, and songs I have written which I sing, there is storytelling, and acting, and movement, and memories of me and my mum.

Mental is about the mind, my mum’s mind, my mind, and your mind. And if its about the mind, somehow its about the heart, the soul, and about humans being.
