Add to My Toolkit

Flippin’ Mental Theatre is a community enterprise working to develop theatre activities around the theme of mental health. It is supported by Sheffield Flourish, and led by writer Kathryn Littlewood.

Recent projects include:

  • Drama for the Mind: a drama group for individuals with lived experience of mental health difficulties and distress. In 2021, the participants produced ‘A Step in the Dark’, a video of monologues around a moment in their lives when the outcome of that moment was unknown. Please be aware that some monologues may include trigger subjects such as suicide and bullying.
  • Cultivating Mad Cow: Kathryn has adapted her memoir, Cultivating Madcow, into a one-woman theatre piece. Since Spring 2020 Kathryn has been working with 6 people with lived experience of mental ill-health and an interest in the theatre to help develop the play.
  • Suicide Monologues: A theatre piece made up of 10-12 stories under the theme of suicide, performed as part of Sheffield’s Festival of the Mind. They also worked with people with lived experience of mental ill-health and an interest in the theatre to develop the content of the performance.
