About

I am studying for a PhD in Drama at the University of Kent, examining the representation of madness/mental illness in recent British theatre. This blog will be used to document the stages of my research, making the process of research transparent and providing a space for input into further areas of investigation. It will also contain reviews of productions which deal with mental distress, and other material relating to literature, theatre and/or mental health.

Due to the nature of the project, the writing on this blog will not be as fully referenced as an academic paper would be. However, if you have any questions about what my rambling ‘some have claimed’ clauses are actually referring to, don’t hesitate to leave a comment asking, and I’ll be happy to clarify.

    hi, I came across your blog and thought you might be interested in a project I have been working on. Here is some information. I wish you well with your research.

    RECORD- a theatre project combining an album of original songs, a theatre performance featuring songs from the album, a context/location-specific series of talks and discussions, media and online interventions, music video, public lectures, workshops, and essays. The project uses as its starting point Dylan Tighe’s personal history and archive of mental health diagnosis and treatment and aims to re-conceptualise issues of Mental Health. A Dylan Tighe and Cork Midsummer Festival production. A co-production with Dublin Theatre Festival.
