Slightly Cracked

2nd November @ 7:30 pm - 12th November @ 7:30 pm AEDT

AUD20 – AUD30

Mental Health Facilities. Funding Cuts. Family Dinners. Anyone has the potential to crack.

New mum Nadia is at crisis point and checks into the Head to Heath facility for some much needed respite. This new age facility provides free, around the clock mental healthcare as well as deluxe spa treatments, facials, yoga, cocktails and more… but is it all too good to be true?

Drawing upon real stories and interviews, this new work by Girls Act Good explores the often grotesque nature of mental health treatment for women over time, and aims to shine a light on women’s resilience in such circumstances, shedding shame and stigma for the future.
