Red Sky Morning by Tom Holloway

 

Director's Note

Mental illness often remains hidden in our society. It is easy to hide behind an often smiling face; without rash, or limp, or pallor. And yet for those experiencing it, the suffocating effects easily rival physical illnesses.

While the full mastery of such a highly technical play as Red Sky Morning is not quite a reality in this context, I do hope we succeed in touching your life with this honest and beautiful story, insightfully told from the inside out.
