The Garden of the Mind

Sat October 12 at 7:30 pm

Lithgow residents will be proud to learn that a local theatre production company, Trybal Productions (auspiced by Arts Out West), are set to create and perform a theatre show focused on understanding the lived experiences of Lithgow residents who at various times in their lives have suffered from mental health distress. The show will be held at the historic Lithgow State mine on October the 12th, what makes this show so powerful is the fact that it is entirely based on the lived experience of Lithgow residents.The show will be performed by Lithgow residents past and present using cutting edge theatre design and performance techniques from Director Katrina Douglas, Music Director Peter Kennard and theatre and video design by Sean Bacon.The show has been supported by local mental Health care providers who are ensuring that the story being told is accurate and very relevant to the experience of Lithgow community. The show will encompass a wide variety. The show will be a testament to the resourcefulness, resilience and compassion of the Lithgow community.Although the show will touch on the pain and suffering that is experienced by people it shows that as a community and as individuals we can support others in our community by understanding and raising our awareness of the issues people suffering mental distress face.Everyone is touched by mental health challenges at some point in their life , and we at Trybal Productions want to help the Lithgow community to see that it can lessen the burden people face if they feel safe to talk about what they are experiencing, and that the community feel confident in helping where they can or know where to send people to get help.

Auspiced by Arts OutWest. Funded by Wentworth Healthcare, provider of the Nepean Blue Mountains Primary Health Network (NBMPHN).
