A new comedy musical about anxiety disorders, caring and trying to keep going. With power ballads, show tunes and body percussion, House of Blakewell explore what it’s like to be human and to struggle.
Alice is making a new start. Things are going to be different. She has moved out of the big city to a small town, doing the job she loves as an Occupational Therapist. She is going to be a new person here, cool, calm and free. The kind of person who goes running everyday and can go to a cafe and sit on their own. She is going to make a difference, meet new people and become a new woman…But her old friend Anxiety has other ideas…
How do you make new friends when even choosing what to have for dinner fills you with dread and self-doubt? What do you do when it all gets too much?
