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+.
