Part of A Bit Of A Do – a 3 day mini-festival of theatre, dance and cabaret by artists and companies with and without disabilities. (full details of festival below)
A double-bill of new theatre pieces exploring mental health:
CATCHING THE GHOST by Chris Campion / Extant
Catching the Ghost is the debut play from Chris Campion, a visually impaired actor and musician from London. Highlights from this production describe the complex journey of a young man (Chris) whose gradual loss of sight takes him through an uncompromising experience of depression and split identity. Packed with acute observations and sharp humour, the production also features original music, composed and performed by Chris.
“[a] beautiful piece of comedy/music/confessional theatre”
“the most honest, moving & open show I’ve ever seen”
Directed by Maria Oshodi and produced by Extant, the UK’s leading performing arts company of visually impaired artists www.extant.org.uk

Funded by Unlimited’s R+D grant. In association with Wales Millennium Centre. Developed with Duncan Hallis and George Soave.
