S06E04 - Theatrical Therapy
Manage episode 340139389 series 2885279
The famous phrase tells us “laughter is the best medicine”, and it is equally true that theatre and entertainment can help in many ways when it come to improving the lives of those who need an extra bit of positivity, or are suffering in some way.
Drew and Sam’s second guest of Season Six is David Bain - a man deeply involved in and passionate about theatre, bringing the hidden plight of others to light, and helping people to heal. The unique shows he has written are designed primarily to give necessary exposure to the serious subject of mental health, but beyond using theatre to open this world and publicise it more, Dave also successfully uses his creations to manage a delicate juggling act of entertaining and informing.
Combining his experience as an actor, musician, writer, and producer with being a practising psychotherapist, results in his work being not only well crafted and presented, but vital and hugely appreciated, and Dave’s ability to find humour in just the right places while never losing the gravitas or impact of the serious topics he addresses has earned him and his productions extremely positive responses. So join Drew, Sam and Dave in this latest Drewling Samantics episode, for conversation that is sometimes serious, sometimes light hearted, and always interesting and entertaining.
