The central actress and writer, portrayed with pin point accuracy what happens when you have tried and tried to meet the expected milestones; degree, career, engagement, marriage and children but life has other plans; anxiety creeps in. Then there is further anxiety of not being able to cope and burdening others.

The accuracy is immediate from the first scene; where she is stood trying to breathe calmly, take in surroundings but, looking at anything or hearing anything birds, cars, people is another distraction that makes her want to hyperventilate rather than breathe calmly.

As well as looking at her story, it looks at the difficulties of someone trying to support someone with anxiety. Possibly not easy viewing for some of suicide is a trigger issue. But hopefully the accuracy, as though someone is speaking your mind will show people at least they are not alone; because of course there is no easy option but knowing not only one struggling is something if not necessarily comforting when feel so bad.

For those without these experiences it may still be hard to understand but I can honestly say it was very authentic. It is being shown at The Space on the mile.

Brilliant production, insightful, provocative, moving and at times funny. A must see! 5 STARS!
Really enjoyed it, the message of the piece came across really well.
That was fantastic! Just right, explained the difficulty recognising, not knowing how to ask for help, how to help yourself let able be able to tell others, and feeling like what’s there to help won’t work...wonderful!
