An interesting set of events that many people should be interested in??
Please can you spread the word about this event to your members? BOLDtext’s new plays, focusing on Mental Health, aim to shed light on these thorny issues and stimulate a debate: Whose responsibility is your Mental Health? which will take place afterwards in The Door, led by Stephen Sanger of Birmingham MIND.
Writing about ‘issues’ is a tricky process, so please do come along and tell us what you think! Hope to see you there – 8pm The Door, Birmingham Rep, Mon 26 Sept. Free booking details below.
