Augustus's own decline into mental illness, psychosis and mental hospital.
People with experience of mental illness - directly or indirectly - who have seen it are very warm and positive about the show.
The whole show is 50 minutes and includes material that may be inappropriate in some settings (nudity, bad language, self-harm specifics) but excerpts from the show are possible dealing with individual themes
Being in love and then losing it
Being in a mental hospital
The freedom and empowerment of nudity
Medication and resistance to it
