Though This Be Madness

Though This Be Madness is a one woman show written and performed by Skye Loneragan.

 

In Skye's words:"Bouncing on a pilates ball in the Land of Lounge Room, a recovering mum is desperate to soothe her baby. Unable to reach her sister, who wrestles sometimes with a cataract on what Shakespeare calls the mind’s eye, she stitches together a pillow-book of tales told through poetry and performance."

Filming

Skye and I have collaborated on the filming of the show twice, once at Edinburgh's The Scottish Story Telling Centre in May 2018 as part of the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival and again at East Kilbride's Platform in March 2019. Another run of the show will commence in Winter 2019.

 

The above trailer was filmed at Platform.
