Rob stands on the edge of oblivion just as the chaotic Ellie careers into his life. They desperately need each other but is Ellie, who’s struggling with her own Borderline Personality Disorder, really the best person to try and help?
This touching, funny story explores a relationship born in the throes of a mental health crisis as a couple struggles to find their place in the world. Sometimes you can only save one person. And it’s okay if that person is you.
This new play by Felicity Huxley-Miners ran at The Old Red Lion Theatre as a co-production with Quantum Frolic Theatre.
We were thrilled to be supported by mental health charity Mind and raised money and awareness throughout the production run.
