Why Am I e-flyer

The play Why AM I presents the experience of manic depression in a series of poetic stanzas and dramatic events from the life of actor and writer Vin McCullagh, who has been both a patient and a psychiatric nurse.

For almost a year, Vin and AnNua's Paul Moore have been meeting in Vin's shed, two middle aged men making theatre when we should be fixing old cars. In between discussing what is it to suffer depression, we have gradually worked in terms of acting technique, internals and thought honing Vin's capacity for deep reflection.

Banyan Theatre's Karen Torley has joined us to help co-direct the play incorporating shadow and light with sound by Fiachra O'Longain.

Why AM I encourages us to see mental health in terms of a persons reaction to a world torn with contradictions, as a form of poetic clarity which may lead to sadness but and also to deep insight and at times even joy.
