Set in a landscape of memory and dreams, The Inconvenience of Wings tackles the issues of friendship, dysfunction, addiction and angels.
This dynamic new drama was inspired by author Abraham J Twerski`s book Addictive Thinking that examines the notion of compulsion, addiction, denial and abuse of self as well as conversations on bipolar disorder that Foot had with celebrated psychiatrist Dr Sean Baumann. It was further stirred by her own father who has suffered from dementia for more than a decade.
'Whether you call it manic depression or bipolar disorder, the affliction wrecks peoples' lives. Eventually, as this play so eloquently demonstrates, it removes even hope... Lara Foot has written and directed a beautifully modulated work... that sympathetically explores the pain and confusion of husband and wife in considerable detail and should not be missed.'
