    Cute But Psycho sits somewhere between a piece of autobiographical Performance Art, a low-budget Musical, and a Hallucinogenic Disco. Exploring the magnetic beauty and the mind-altering struggle of psychosis, Cute But Psycho asks what happens when a spiritual awakening and mental illness collide with an approach to recovery dominated by the medical model.

    A comedic, story-led piece littered with original songs, precise yet peculiar dance routines, and an abundance of characters to lead you through a personal account that seeks to answer what we can take from such a collision. Expect a show that is as exposing and messy as it is fun and ridiculous.

    Cute But Psycho is written and created by Katherine Vince, based on her own experience, with devising input from Paul Andrew Goldsmith, and produced by their company Twisted Reality Productions.
