|This play could not be supported by National MIND and Ealing Council because the issues were thought to be too controversial.
But MAD PRIDE is pleased to link it in with Festival 2000.
|Based on Richard's personal experiences from the 60's and 70's where the only "swinging" he got up to were his moods in psychiatric hospitals. A refreshing upbeat story which Richard describes - "The extraordinary thing about this illness is that it is such fun. One has never felt so great. Joy besets one unconfined. Thousands all over the world are experiencing this - better than any of the illegal drugs which are trying to imitate it and failing miserably."
