Where to Begin
  • Edinburgh Fringe

This story is about telling stories in a world that doesnt abide them. Eleanor, Joel, and Sadie are three very different heroes wrestling with being very different. Having reached an impasse in their respective journeys, they are called upon by a well-meaning scribe to relate their stories so far. Unconvinced by the narratives written for the heroes, the scribe asks instead for the truth - their truth. This fairy tale respectfully represents the individual experiences of young people living with mental health issues. Storytelling is not only a structural element, its a call to action.
