A personal story about mental illnesss
Many people have anxiety in their lives but most don't know how to overcome it. One such young woman who had experienced anxiety and panic attacks at work has turned these symptoms into a new play.
Currently performing her one-woman show, Georgina Cramond tells her true life story of how she didn't know what was happening to her as her emotions started spinning out of control.
After finding an old keyboard she started putting her feelings to music with her own original words. This often humorous story is mixed with her original songs leading the audience from her lows in life to her struggles to recognise her problem.
After attending songwriting classes as therapy and even performing at places such as the Rosemount Hotel and Mojos in North Fremantle, Georgina has now become an established musician.
She used music to help her return to normality. Her music taught her to pick up the pace and keep moving and to challenge her negative thoughts. Her message to others is to recognise your symptoms and overcome them.
This 65-minute non-stop show is on now at The Blue Room Theatre in the Perth Cultural Centre, until 3rd June. Prices start from $18 and shows commence at 8.30pm nightly.
Bookings are highly recommended as her first four shows are booked out. For more info about the Blue Room Theatre, see here.
