“I’m older now. I’m stronger. How do you know I haven’t sorted out some natural equilibrium all on my own? Maybe we should try it, just for a bit...”

As a child Anna was diagnosed with a severe mental illness and prescribed a cocktail of medication. Now she’s a young adult and wondering for the first time how life might feel without it. But as Anna tries to distance herself from her doctor and the label that has defined most of her young life, her mother, Renee, refuses to let go, threatening the fragile balance they have both fought so hard to maintain.

Winner of a Judges Award at the 2015 Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting, Kendall Feaver’s extraordinary play is unflinchingly honest and woven through with startlingly delicate humour. THE ALMIGHTY SOMETIMES is a profoundly moving portrait of a young woman trying to take control, and a mother compelled to protect her.
