A psychiatric patient re-imagines their hospital confinement as the world of an absurd Lunar Colony in a theatrical journey exploring the hazy line between madness and reason. An Evening With Psychosis is based on a series of interviews recorded in 2008 and 2009 of which ten were selected to feature in the final piece as verbatim accounts. A science fiction narrative that runs alongside them depicting a battle between reason and emotion - found typically in such classic science fiction as Star Trek and Space 1999. Finding both reason in madness and madness in reason the show takes a poignant, humorous and absurd journey into the sublime and malign realms of the mind. Designed by Richard Lowdon. 'Quality theatre ... totally compelling' Independent on Sunday
