Three shows exploring the mental health system.
Fruitcake – Ten Commandments from the Psych Ward
Fruitcake charts a night shift on an acute psychiatric ward, seen through the eyes of a jaded nurse who hears the voice of God – a kindly Jamaican woman – who gives him ten benevolent commandments to help him through the shift; and life. Featuring dub poet Jean “Binta” Breeze as the voice of God.
Forget Me Not – The Alzheimer’s Whodunnit
Jim's wife, a patient on a dementia ward, has died from what appears to be natural causes. Jim is a retired police detective and he smells a rat. He's determined to solve one last murder. The problem is he also has dementia. It's a case worthy of the greatest detective mind. But his will have to do.
Kevin, King of Egypt
Escaped psychiatric patient Kevin Haggerty is not pleased about his diagnosis, even less pleased about being on a section of the Mental Health Act, and distinctly upset about being told he is not the reincarnation of an Egyptian pharaoh. On his way to Egypt, via the Tesco Express, he stumbles across the nemesis to all his plans: Millie. Together they embark on a journey that changes their lives forever.
