“Monday morning.  I survived the weekend.”
A woman is gripped inside a vortex of multicolour-layered states of mind.  Hers.
Honest, raw, and with sharply observed humour, this is an account of a woman’s struggle with her painful past, inadequate present, and her unquenched desire to find happiness whilst living with a mental illness.
Set against the backdrop of her bedroom, the vibrant, fast paced, seemingly unforgiving, and constantly evolving city of London also inhabits the space and comes to life in this piece of immersive storytelling.
