Debs Gatenby – Hi, Anxiety

‘Two breakdowns – mine and my mum’s – and two recoveries. Yes, it’s a two-for-one. An emotional meal-deal.’

With one in four people estimated to experience mental illness, Debs Gatenby’s one woman show is a laugh-out-loud-funny yet wistful look at how mental illness affected her. And her mum.

A series of witty one-liners keep the story fast-paced and light of touch yet the painful legacy of mental illness in a mother-daughter relationship is never hidden.

An audience member remarked:

“Debs is a powerful storyteller.”
