‘Fantastic’ - a new play from Pete Carruthers
A 'Learning Matters' awards 2017 Case Study.
This project began in 2015 when the team decided to produce a play that would explore themes around mental health and treatment, particularly the idea of what constitutes the dividing line between normal human experience and psychiatric disorders.
Funding was successfully secured from Arts Council England to undertake a research and development phase. This phase involved extensive research, including private research as well as interviews with health professionals and several experts by experience.
