Summer 2019 | Theatre
 Wild Card Theatre presents:

“Absolutely f***ing phenomenal” ★★★★★ Broadway Baby

Electrolyte is a piece of gig theatre written in spoken word poetry and underscored entirely by live music. It follows Jessie on a journey through an episode of psychosis brought on by the death of her parents. A supporting cast of five multi-instrumentalists help her to tell her story. The piece ultimately champions recovery and the importance of friends, community and a sense of place.

The response to the production at The Edinburgh Fringe was unbelievable with a number of audience members returning up to eight times. This is a necessary story which explores Mental Health sensitively for a contemporary audience.
