Systems and Sanity, a theatrical journey through the mental health system by people who have travelled there or gotten lost along the way. 

Systems and Sanity by Rebus Theatre is a devised theatre exploration that comes out of nearly two years of discussion, workshopping, writing, and rehearsal by people with mental health challenges. It travels through lands of trauma and distress, navigates social systems that can be rigid and disempowering, and arrives in the powerful resilience of survivors and the unique bonds between them. It is a journey travelled with pathos, poetry, music and laughter.

Meet at the Gorman Main Hall before heading to the Ralph Wilson Theatre.

Systems and Sanity is produced by Rebus Theatre, supported by the ACT Government under the ACT Health Promotion Grants Program, and assisted by Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres.
