A Pint Sized Conversation

For the first time, Events Truro College goes out into the community to bring a piece of live theatre to a city centre pub venue as part of a mental health awareness campaign, World Mental Health Day, which is marked on each 10th October.

Dylan Frankland, Rosa Day-Jones, Tobias Grace and Katherine Lea
present
A Pint Sized Conversation:
“This summer, she comes to my door and tells me she’s been diagnosed with depression and I think to myself – not this again” 

My friend.
My cousin.
My sister.
My step dad.
So, we know what you’re thinking. 
It’s going to get real sad and serious from now on.
And you’re not wrong, there is going to be stuff in here that is sad.
And serious.
But don’t worry.
We’ve got pork scratchings.
A piece about mental health and offering support.
About not getting it right all of the time.
But trying.

A theatre piece about depression made by those with close family & friends who suffer from it. 
Personal stories are placed front & centre; disrupting the quiet, hushed, stigma surrounding mental health. 
Making it loud, messy & sometimes ugly.
Performed in a Pub, we utilise this intimate setting to directly engage an audience without the conventions imposed by traditional theatre venues.

There will be opportunity for Q&A after the performance and a chance to discuss the themes covered with fellow Pub theatregoers and cast.

About the company.
A Pint Sized Conversation is a uplifting, moving and often humorous piece about mental health, specifically depression, told from the point of view of those who don’t experience depression directly but all have close family & friends who do. 
Talking honestly and frankly about these experiences we share what it is like to be in that situation of supporting someone. 
Combining personal experiences with ‘beautiful and highly stylised moments’

(Upper Circle) such as live song, physical storytelling and even a psychedelic, glowing tour of the brain, the Pint Sized team create a relaxed communal and conversational atmosphere. 
Much like grabbing a pint down your local.

Supported by Arts Council England, Hall For Cornwall, Into Bodmin, The Bike Shed Theatre, Truro and Penwith College, The University of Exeter and Devon NHS Trust.
Dylan Frankland is lead artist of the project. 
Outside of A Pint Sized Conversation Dylan is also Co-Artistic Director of Kill The Cat Theatre who were The Bike Shed Theatre’s graduate company 2016-2017 and has worked with award winning artists such as Nigel Barrett, Louise Mari, Emma Frankland, Little Solider Productions, Sarah Mooney and Wassail Theatre.
