Theatrical Play on Schizophrenia - "When Time Collapses"
Read more... Schizophrenia Books, TV, Movies & Plays
There is a very well-recieved new play that is being performed in the UK and Canada that is focused on schizophrenia. We recommend NAMI chapters (as well as Schizophrenia Society chapters in Canada) bring the play to their cities as an educational fund-raising opportunity.
The play is titled "When Times Collapses", and is a powerful play about a teenager's lead-up to his first experience of psychosis. Reviewers have described it as a groundbreaking new play about one family's experiences of schizophrenia. "When Time Collapses" explores the difficulties experienced as a result of the disease, but also offers hope on managing schizophrenia.
The first scene shows the family dealing with the consequences of the illness when the sufferer has not been given the appropriate treatment. The second scene shows how it can be treated effectively.
The play was written by Polly Wright with the help of Dr. David Shiers and Dr. Fiona Macmillan, from the National Institute of Mental Health in England (NIMHE).
One reviewer had this to say about the play:
Annita Wahab is impressed by a theatre play as a means of bringing schizophrenia to centre stage
