Bastards in the Black Hole by Prospero Theatre

Inspiring Change is a festival of plays and wrap around events celebrating a positive and compassionate approach to mental health.
The festival sits around a collection of one-act plays, many of which have been created for Inspiring Change, which span a wide range of mental health issues and related topics. Wrapped around this are a series of other events, creative and informative, to give insight into positive practice and to build links between the mental health sector and the arts.
Inspiring Change runs from 13th May to 24th June in ten venues in Surrey and London. It features the work of eight performance companies plus a wonderfully diverse range of speakers, workshop leaders, poets and artists.
