Web ImageUpon the invitation of New York’s Theater for the New City’s annual Dream Up Festival, the Elements World Theatre will be presenting five performances of its new play, Messages From A Mental Institution in late August of this year.

First presented in March at Summerhall in Edinburgh, the play tells a simple story of what happens when strange messages from a Woman’s missing husband spark her heroic quest to find his true identity and rescue him from a mental institution. Presented in an absurd, surreal style, the play deals with complex issues around identity, spiritual awakening and the nature of “reality.”

Theatre for the New City, established in 1970, maintains a unique commitment to high artistic standards and dedicates their annual Dream Up festival exclusively to new works of a non-traditional bent, offering audiences three weeks of original, innovative theatrical work.

Lee Gershuny, playwright and Artistic Director of the Elements World Theatre sees her return to her native New York City as “an opportunity to deepen my theatrical roots while recognizing the vital role theatre continues to play in my life.” Lee will be traveling to New York with the original cast – James Bryce and Corinne Harris.
The company returns to Edinburgh in time to begin their Scotland tour of Lockerbie – Lost Voices by Lee Gershuny, last seen on the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2013 at the Netherbow Theatre in the Scottish Storytelling Centre.
