Voices And Visions
Voices And Visions
Four people who hear voices (Ray, Sam, Jo and Terry) struggle to survive with the help of a British NHS psychiatric service. We see them at home, in hospital and in therapy. The play opens in the street where Sam's brother, Connor, mugs Jo. Jude, a dramatherapist, gets a job in the psychiatric service. She meets all four patients and offers them a therapy group. (Four scenes show us the life of that therapy group.) Connor burgles Terry's house resulting in Terry going back into hospital. Ray does a cathartic psychodrama in the therapy group that releases him from the grip of a repetitive nightmare. He and Sam develop a friendship but Connor interrupts their first outing to a pub and the violence leads to Ray becoming disturbed. The final scene leaves the audience unsure whether he will be sectioned back into hospital or escape into the new relationship with Sam. Jo becomes a singer in a nightclub.
