Set in a psychiatric hospital in 1990, at a time when patients were being rehoused in community houses, The Mental is a warm, beautiful, often funny and sometimes heart breaking story of a man who spent four decades in care for doing a good deed.
Written and performed by John McKenna, directed by Angela Keogh, music by Katie Jacques and lit by Tom Kennedy, The Mental has met with powerfully empathetic responses from audiences on its first tour.
