We are delighted to welcome John MacKenna to The Blessington Bookstore to perform his one man play ‘The Mental’. It’s the story of John Salter, a man who spent forty years in psychiatric care for doing a good deed.
John MacKenna spent eighteen months interviewing staff and former patients at a number of psychiatric hospitals and focused on a time around 1990 when patients were beginning to be moved back into the community. John Salter is one of those but he doesn’t want to go. He likes life in the hospital and he has his jobs – waking the crows in the morning, putting them to bed at night.
Played to great acclaim in venues all over Ireland – now in Blessington. Book now to be sure of a seat – limited seats available on the night
Thursday May 9th wine reception at 7.00pm followed at 7.30pm by The Mental performed by John MacKenna.
