North East theatre group Inter-acting, whose mission is to: “Advocate equality by sharing stories that reflect the society that we work and play within”, are set to host a fascinating community play this month with the focus primarily on mental health – expect to think differently about thinking.
‘Overcoming Overthought’, which runs at the Star and Shadow Cinema in Newcastle on Friday 14th December, is an original story around the theme of mental health, specifically looking at the process of being diagnosed with a mental health condition. The show is a mix of physical theatre, naturalistic storytelling, comedy, verbatim and playback improvisation.
Join the theatre group as they showcase their first ever public performance. Some participants have never performed any theatre before so it’s imperative that theatre lovers head down to the Star and Shadow Cinema to show their support for grassroots theatre. This is a chance to join them as they surprise themselves as well as surprise everyone else.
Inter-acting’s participatory-led community group have been meeting every week for months. Inside the drop-in style sessions, ritual games have been played and long-time friends have been made. If you would like to find out more about Inter-acting and their meetings, please head to inter-acting.co.uk.
Overcoming Overthought runs at the Star and Shadow Cinema, Newcastle on Friday 14th December with the production starting at 21:00.
Tickets, priced at £4.00 in advance, are available from inter-acting.co.uk/book-tickets.
