Wolf Tamer is a new 50-minute one woman play about fear, grief, mental illness and love, written and performed by Rachel Mae Brady.
The aim of the play is to break down stigma surrounding mental illness through theatre. It is vital that we tell the stories of people who are struggling with mental illness -so often isolated, or forgotten about – as this helps others to understand what they are going through. Telling the true stories of people who are experiencing or have experienced mental illness enables us to reach out to audience members undergoing comparable issues, who may have until now been suffering alone.
This first performance of Wolf Tamer will be followed by a discussion about issues explored in the show. We are delighted that our Head of Regional Operations Simon Newton will be chairing this discussion.
Simon said, “I’m proud to work for Restore, an Oxfordshire-based mental health charity that supports people to take control of their recovery, develop skills and lead meaningful lives. It’s so important that we talk about mental ill health and I’m delighted to be chairing the post-play discussion to explore important issues further.”
All tickets are sold out for the performance on Thursday 28th June at Arts at The Old Fire Station.
