“Alice is ok. She is absolutely ok. In fact, she is so ok that all the ok-ness is starting to cancel itself out and make it look like she might not be ok.”
Broken is a semi-stand-up performance that explores what it means to need a bit of help in a world where everybody expects you to be perfect. It details Alice’s ongoing quest to “feel a little less sad” in any (often humorous) way she can, tackling the pressures of caring for your own mental health with lightness and comedy, while not ignoring the serious nature of depression and its effects on the individual.
Echoing the duality of the performer’s personal and private lives, we at Whims Knot Theatre hope to reflect the fact that help is always available – whether that be in formal talking therapy, or in “belting loudly along to a tearjerker” a la Bridget Jones – and, above all, give a sense of hope and a damn good laugh to any who might need it.
