Following their successful production of John Osborne's kitchen sink classic, Look Back in Anger, last September, Blackhand bring Some Voices, a tough social drama written by British playwright Joe Penhall in 1994 as a response to newly enacted laws in Britain that released large numbers of the institutionalized mentally ill back into the general population.
"Some Voices is about the difficulties of assimilating in the metropolis." - Joe Penhall
SOME VOICES tells the story of Ray, an enigmatic, wild-eyed schizophrenic patient who is released from psychiatric care to live with Pete, his overworked and overprotective brother. We follow Ray as he struggles to understand love, family, and ultimately, his place in the world. His grip on reality is tested when he meets and falls in love with Laura, a young pregnant woman who is trying to escape an abusive relationship with her boyfriend, Dave.
Please note this performance contains smoking and the use of strong language. Only recommended for ages 16+
