Following the success of their tour with Leonard Cohen’s Between Your Love and Mine, Mend & Makedo Theatre Co. return with a new play, The Mental.
This is the third play in John MacKenna's Barrow Trilogy (Lucinda Sly in 2014; Corner Boys in 2016). The Mental is a heartwarming, beautiful and lifeenhancing play about one man's courage, love and belief. Sometimes hilarious, sometimes heartbreakingly sad, The Mental uncovers the history of John Salter, a man who has spent forty years in psychiatric care – a history littered with disappointment, hope and optimism, a life that is a beacon to us all.
Writer JOHN MacKENNA is the author of nineteen books; ten stage plays (including Who By Fire; Breathless; Lucinda Sly; Corner Boys; Sergeant Pepper and Redemption Song); four radio plays, and is a frequent and hugely popular contributor to Sunday Miscellany on RTÉ. He has voiced more than a hundred TV documentaries and has toured widely with Mend & Makedo Theatre Company.
