Theatrical investigation into the nature of psychosis and recovery, based on the extraordinary memoir by Arnhild Lauveng. A unique personal story of living with and recovering from schizophrenia – a contentious prognosis that challenges our perception and understanding of the condition – this bold and inventive new production interrogates this controversial text with insights from world-leading psychologists, psychiatrists and neuroscientists.

Based on I morgen var jeg alltid en løve by Arnhild Lauveng

Ages 14+

Followed by Belarusian cuisine and a platform discussion in partnership with Young Mind.

“Effective and powerful... Simple techniques make a huge impact... The acting fis uniformly terrific and committed... Essential. ”

Sarah Crompton (What's On Stage, Guardian)

“Simple yet powerful... Visual storytelling at its most inventive. ”

Tim Bano (The Stage, Time Out)

“Harrowing yet absorbing, wryly humorous and, in Shcherban’s elegant, inventive staging, curiously beautiful... Searing. ”

Sam Marlowe (The Times, The Stage, Time Out, Arts Desk)

“Bold, distressing and performed with brave rawness... Discusses a pressing subject with care and honesty. ”

Sarah Hemming (Financial Times)

“Showcases BFT’s trademark physical style, but doesn’t always make the impact it should. Arnhil is a sympathetic protagonist. ”

Theo Bosanquet (Time Out, What's On Stage)

“The five actors involved perform with exemplary lack of inhibition... Vibrant. ”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)
