London, UK. 20.10.2016. Belarus Free Theatre present "Tomorrow I was Always A Lion", devised and directed by Vladimir Shcherban. "Tomorrow I Was Always a Lion" is a theatrical investigation into the nature of psychosis and recovery based on the extraordinary memoir, ‘A Road Back from Schizophrenia’ by Norwegian clinical psychologist Arnhild Lauveng. Lauveng describes herself as a “former schizophrenic”, and the book chronicles a ten-year period of her illness and recovery. To interrogate the depths of the text, the production has been created in collaboration with scientific advisors from some of Europe’s largest research centres, The Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at King’s College, and the Institute of Neuroscience at Trinity College Dublin, as well as with clinical practitioners. The actors are: Grace Andrews (Cheek by Jowl’s The Winter’s Tale), Oliver Bennett (Backbeat), Emily Houghton (Out Of The Cage, A New Play for the General Election), Samantha Pearl (Brave New World) and Alex Robertson (The Seagull, London Wall).
