Caroline Horton and Company
Thursday 28th November at 7.30pm
ARENA THEATRE, Wolverhampton
Josephine is putting on a play – Boris and Sistahl help. It’s
about anorexia. But don’t let that put you off. Unflinchingly they confront big issues (and extremely tiny ones). Today they will tackle a particularly thin elephant in the room:
Obsession, addiction and not wanting to get out of bed.
A play with songs, based on 2013 Olivier Award nominated
Caroline Horton’s own experiences of anorexia, Mess is a show about one person’s journey through anorexia torecovery:
Darkly funny, deeply moving and incredibly bold.
Acutely aware of the ethical concerns of creating work
about mental illness, Caroline collaborated closely with
experts from Ethox, Beat, the Maudsley Hospital and
King’s College London’s Institute of Psychiatry in both the study and treatment of anorexia and the ethical issues surrounding it.
Having won the Stage Award for Best Ensemble in 2012,
The show is now enjoying a highly successful UK tour.
Touring in association with Beat (the UK’s leading charity supporting people affected by eating disorders).
Developed with the help of experts from King’s College London’s
Institute of Psychiatry.
