Though This Be Madness

“Once upon a time... I don’t have time”

Bouncing on a Pilates ball in 'The Land of Lounge Room' is a love-struck, sleep-deprived, first-time mum desperate to soothe her baby - so she can finish her sentence and tell you this story.

Unable to reach her sister Ophelia, who is wrestling mental health,  she attempts to ‘stay on the ball’, stitching together a fractured fiction of women's lives told through poetry and performance.

'Loneragan is such a gifted and engaging performer, both in words and movement, that the quiet integrity of her unadorned staging finally comes to seem like a gift' - Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman. 

This production is supported by Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival and Creative Scotland
