It’s a show about friendship being a woman and asking for help.
Riding the rollercoaster of a moving and courageous real-life experiment, Rhiannon Faith and Maddy Morgan share their experiences after attending CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) sessions with the psychologist Joy Griffiths in order to learn more about themselves and maybe, just maybe, find a future free of fear. The transition in reality from Scary Shit, to recovery and healing, in a language of dance, theatre, comedy and therapy.
Scary Shit: Imagine a world without fear…
‘Bold, brave and moving’ Lyndsey Winship (Evening Standard)
‘You go in the silly door and come out profoundly moved’ Nicohlas Minns (Writing About Dance)
‘Presented with wit and poignancy’ Luke Jennings (Observer)
Scary Shit is supported by Arts Council England, RichMix, Proteus Creation Space, Arts Depot, The Garage and developed through the Open LAB scheme at Barbican/Guildhall.
