"Over The Wall Picking Apples sets itself apart by the quality of writing, acting and directing.

This is a brilliantly written and performed show, that gets to the heart of so many aspects of mental health."

Disability Arts Online

Happily married with a lovely house on the Somerset Levels, Richard could have settled down to life as a withy weaver, cider maker or llama farmer. But then the fish tank started singing to him – the same song over and over, day after day. It was enough to drive him mad.

This is the story of Richard’s response to all this: his admission into the mental health service, a diagnosis of bipolar disorder, medication (the highs…the lows) and making sense of a lifetime lived over the wall picking apples.

Join Richard on his emotional roller-coaster as he squares up to the frightening, the furious and the funny sides of mad.

We have prepared a sheet that might help you prepare for any potential triggers the show may create.  You can download it here
