So U Think I'm CraZy?
Enthusiastic actors and actresses wanted for an emotive, edicatuonal play on mental health.

Join our cast for a string of live performances this year (2017).
 
We're a small London-based community threatre group that explores and showcases issues on  mental heath and the 'system' in Britain today.

Our piece of 'therapeutic theatre' uses rap, poetry dance and music to express mental ill health through the eyes if a young black male, taking the audience through the streets of London to th secure wing of a psychiatric hospital.

We are looking for people with or without acting experience but who are professional. Although an understanding about mental health issues would be desirable, it is not essential.

 ***Please note, that we are a voluntary organisation, which means we are unable to pay actors a salary. We will, however, be able to cover travel expenses for events and offer complimentary tickets to performances.***
