The Baxter presents acclaimed writer and director, Lara Foot’s The Inconvenience of Wings, a play that brings bipolar disorder and friendships into the spotlight.
Inspired by author Abraham J Twerski’s book Addictive Thinking, this production is set in a landscape of memory and dreams, and tackles the issues of friendship, dysfunction, addiction and angels. Sara has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder; she is compulsive, alive and hates women who know how to make cupcakes. Andrew, her husband, is on a mission to find a cure for her afflictions and Professor James quietly tries to save Andrew from the inconvenience of his wings.
The powerful and poignant drama about friendship, dysfunction, addiction and angels makes for compelling viewing with burning contemporary themes and its devastating effect on the family. Set in a landscape of memory and dreams this play cuts close to the bone for anyone who has suffered mental illness themselves, or has lived with someone who is afflicted. Written and directed by Lara Foot CAST Jennifer Steyn, Andrew Buckland & Mncedisi Shabangu.
