‘Happyminds Hospital’ is the latest incarnation of Stevie Helps’ 5* production which has been developing since 2015. Previous carnations include: Dragged Up, Borderline Electra, Mind’s A Labyrinth and Rachel. Happyminds Hospital is based on the authors own experiences about the downside of mental health and psychiatric hospitals. The unconventional play has ADHD, BI POLAR and a BORDERLINE PERSONALITY DISORDER of its very own.
 
Everything in Rachel’s life is crumbling. She has suffered a whirlwind of abuse, but now is the abused becoming the abuser? With a villainous Father and a new lovable love interest, can she break free from her prison of torment, or will she forever remain a pawn in a squiggly wiggly game of oopsies?
 
Come experience Rachel, and 13 other exciting characters, in this winding tale of drama, plunging deep into melodrama, surrealism… and realism in a unique piece of Theatre.

Vinnie Killed the Popstar by Stevie Helps

VINNIE KILLED THE POPSTAR

SALFORD – SALFORD ARTS THEATRE – 27-29 JULY , 7.30PM  [BOOK TICKETS NOW]

Inspired by true events in 1996, Vinnie Killed the Popstar is a brand new play by award winning Director Stevie Helps premiering as part of The Manchester Fringe Festival.

Vinnie, a lonely and socially awkward man, never really fitted in. After taking one look at ‘The Pixie Pop Star’, his dark obsession begins… As he grows increasingly disappointed by his idol, his infatuation becomes personal and he sets out to destroy her life.

WARNING: This is not going to be pretty.

Is Vinnie evil, or has he been failed by those around him and the mental health services?
Who is the more guilty party – Vinnie and his bomb, or the Press and their shameless need to exploit celebrities and their traumas?

TICKETS £8 CONCESSION | £10 FULL
DOORS OPEN 7PM | PERFORMANCE 7.30PM
