A Generous Lover

About A Generous Lover

This is the true, and very queer tale, of one soul’s journey through the wasteland of mental illness, to deliver their lost love.

Brimming with psychedelic proletarian prose, and trenchant wit, it recounts the pandemonium of navigating mental health services on behalf of a loved one, whilst being gender queer, and occasionally being mistaken for a patient.

Drawing on epic poetry, classical mythology, and queer modernist literature, A Generous Lover fuses psychology, euphonic prose, and song, to create an intimate and beguiling world. Somewhere between a seance and a recital, it delves into psychosis with compassion, hoping to find catharsis.

This production contains sensitive mental health content. Suitable for ages 16+.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for A Generous Lover are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
