Chapter Arts CentreElaine Paton 

Tuesday 27 June – Saturday 1 July @ 7.30pm.

Join Elaine and her fellow depressives for a manic romp in fluffy slippers. Follow them over the rugged terrain of hospitalisation, down the thorny path of despair, towards the slow tango of recovery. This quirky cabaret reveals the struggle to appear normal when the world inside you is falling apart.

Performed by Elaine Paton, Gareth Clark and Marega Palser. 

There will be a free installation depicting the inner word of being mentally unwell. Featuring film, audio, moment(o)s from Whitchurch Mental Hospital and items from Elaine’s life – including her diaries. 

The installation will be 10am-5pm each day followed by performances at 7.30pm. 

Tickets: £12/£10 (day time installation is free)

Age 14+ (guidance) 

The production has grown from Elaine’s acclaimed production, “Moment(o)s of Leaving” at Whitchurch Mental Hospital last year, and subsequent R&Ds. This new show is a reflection on Elaine’s personal journey through mental unwellness.
