MESSAGES FROM A MENTAL INSTITUTION

The Elements World Theatre presents “Messages From A Mental Institution” – a Kafkaesque power struggle between established authority and the individual.

Written by Lee Gershuny

Directed by Corinne Harris with James Bryce

Messages from a Mental Institution

19 February 2014: “Messages From A Mental Institution” presents complex social, political and philosophical ideas in light-hearted, often laughable dialogue between a man and a woman.

A woman believes her husband is sending her messages from a mental institution. She wants to help him, but she doesn’t know where he is or why he’s there. She looks everywhere and consults various authorities. Where is this mental institution? Who is really sending the messages and why?

An absurd, surreal production, Messages From a Mental Institution invites the audience to leave their pre-conceptions behind and be totally unprepared for whatever happens.
The playwright, Lee Gershuny, says “I see this play as a light-hearted Kafkaesque journey toward love, truth and freedom.”
