Presented By Tamworth Dramatic Society
Geoffrey explores the effect of mental illness on the lives of two men, and how their loved ones somehow cope and lead the way to redemption.
Written by local poet Peter Langston, and featuring work from some of the region's finest creatives, Geoffrey is a premiere production from the Tamworth Dramatic Society.
Geoffrey has a distinctly Australian voice, telling a story that might previously have been told in hiding, in the suburbs, possibly even about someone next door. Shining a light on the courage, the love, the destruction, and the recovery which can be mental wellness, this is a play with a story to tell which is both current and important.
"It was the first time I'd had live poetry on air and it left me unable to speak. The eyes welled, the breathing was gulped and I had no words to express how beautiful, intimate and devastating Peter's words were."
