“Once upon a time…
I don’t have time.”

There are many sisters in this story.
One of them is bouncing on a Pilates ball in The Land of Lounge Room – a recovering mum and love-struck, sleep-deprived teat desperate to soothe her baby – so she can finish her sentence and tell you this tale

Unable to reach her sister Ophelia who wrestles with a cataract on what Shakespeare calls the ‘mind’s eye’, she attempts to ‘stay on the ball’, Though This Be Madness, stitching together a fractured fiction told through poetry and performance.

How can we nurture our collective sanity?

Written & Performed by Skye Loneragan. Music by Mairi Campbell & Dave Gray. Lyrics by Skye Loneragan. Directorial support: Kath Burlinson & Stewart Ennis, Choreographic support: Emma Jayne Park.
