Going Slightly Mad

Five strangers with nothing in common, except an illness.


Wednesday 17 October - Thursday 18 October 2018


Bedlam Theatre




Michael Hajiantonis


For two nights only the EUTC is proud to bring to the Bedlam stage the theatrical debut of “Going Slightly Mad”.

Max has just been sectioned and she doesn’t know why. She’s completely healthy, or so she thinks. But how does she know what’s healthy and how can she tell what’s real? Meanwhile, someone’s drawn Eamon Holmes on the blackboard, Damon Albarn’s faked his own death, and the only thing that’s on the TV is “A Question of Sport.”

Written by EUTC member and University of Edinburgh undergraduate Michael Hajiantonis, “Going Slightly Mad” is an honest and unflinching account of the mental health services in the United Kingdom. Both humorous and uncompromising in equal measure, it marks the emergence of a confident new voice in Edinburgh’s theatre scene.
