A frank and touching tale about a woman and her schizophrenic mother, written by Scottish writer and actress Fiona Geddes.
'Our mothers always remain the strangest, craziest people we've ever met.' (Marguerite Duras) Kirsty's mother is inappropriate, embarrassing and definitely unusual. For 25 years Kirsty accepted crazy as conventional. All mothers are slightly insane, right? But Kirsty's mother isn’t like all mothers … If you're raised in madness who tells you what's normal?
Based on a true story, this solo show is a frank, funny and deeply touching tale of Kirsty McKenzie and her schizophrenic mother. Join Kirsty as she attempts to distinguish her mother from the madness, the one subject no one wants to mention.
‘Hilarious at times and heart-breaking in others…Normal/Madness is an unpretentious and authentic show that shouldn’t be missed.’ ★★★★ The Edinburgh Guide
‘powerful and moving…funny, to the point of belly laughter (with) an almighty, but tactfully underplayed, emotional punch. An amazing debut.’ ★★★★ Broadwaybaby
