The Inconvenience of Wings
The original text
The play tells the story of friendship, dysfunction, addiction and angels, set in a landscape of memory and dreams and was inspired by Abraham J Twerski`s book Addictive Thinking on the notion of compulsion, addiction, denial and abuse of self, and on conversations on bipolar disorder with psychiatrist Dr Sean Baumann, as well as memories of her father who has suffered from dementia for more than a decade.
The plot concerns Sara, who has been diagnosed with bi-polar disorder, Andrew, her husband, who is on a mission to find a cure for her afflictions, and Professor James, who quietly tries to save Andrew from the inconvenience of his wings.
