An important hour of theatre that moves, amuses & informs in equal measure – exquisitely written and brilliantly performed.
Section 2 is an important and timely piece of theatre, raising awareness of the far-reaching impact of mental illness, and sectioning in particular. More than that though, it’s a play about friendship and human relationships.
In a week’s time, Paper Creatures Theatre will take to the stage as part of The Bunker’s latest venture: Breaking Out with Peter Imms’ Section 2.
It’s now just under a month to go until the Breaking Out season begins at The Bunker Theatre, so I took the opportunity to chat to Alex Da Silva (Kay) and Esmé Patey-Ford (Rachel) who will be appearing in Paper Creatures’ Section 2.
Section 2 is a new play by London-based playwright Peter Imms which addresses the sensitive subject of mental health. It’s been developed in collaboration with emerging theatre company Paper Creatures.
“You worry (especially with fringe theatre): are you going to put bums on seats? Is it going to be able to portray the message you want? Will the audience get much out of it?”
