First Fortnight presents in association with See Change Combining music, comedy sketches and stories, Box of Frogs is a revue around the subject of mental health problems. Seeking to de-mysti fy, debunk and ultimately have a laugh with what really goes on inside our heads, the play features a well-known cast of actors and comedians who share their stories in a work written in collaboration with talented actress and playwright Isobel Mahon. An audience is invited in to be entertained by the thoughts of a cast featuring much-loved actress and TV star Mary McEvoy; stand-up comedian, journalist and Newstalk presenter Dil Wickremasinghe; and writer, comedian and frequent media contributor, John Moynes. Caroline FitzGerald (White Woman Street) once again directs an unmissable project following a well-received run at Dublin’s Smock Alley Theatre earlier this year.
First Fortnight is a charity-based organisation, help to change people’s perceptions about an issue that affects us all.
First Fortnight is an arts-based mental health organisation, a festival and, from December 2012, a mental health service provider with the exciting launch of the First Fortnight Centre for Creative Therapies.
