Missing Hypnos / Free Frestival
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Ollie has chronic insomnia, a mental and physical illness that affects 10% of people in the UK. What started as a few sleepless nights on holiday in New York in 2007, quickly turned into a decade-long struggle with insomnia. Missing Hypnos is written in verse and prose; the play aims to shed light on the severity of the psychological affects of insomnia, and explores the prevalence of mental illness in the 21st century.
