A funny, fragile and profound fable based on groundbreaking medical research and real-life war testimonies, theatre legends Jon Haynes and David Woods (Ridiculusmus) return to the Seymour Centre as part of The Big Anxiety Festival in Give Me Your Love for a strictly limited season from 31 October 2017.
Ex-soldier and budding rock star Zach has withdrawn into a cardboard box in a kitchen in West Wales. His friend Leuan offering a form of recovery through a capsule containing 3,4 methylenedioxymethamphetamine, with which he claims to have successfully treated his own post-traumatic stress.
Parachuted into their recently fractured pasts, Zach and Leuan swing between dreamboat heroism and woozy enlightenment via a head warping exchange on patriotism, conflict and supermarket shopping that will tickle, move and appall you in equal measures.
The second instalment of Ridiculusmus’ three-pronged investigation into innovative approaches to mental health, Give Me Your Love is informed by the latest scientific research, it explores the healing potential in altered states of consciousness.
