The Parkin Development Season at BATS presents Committed.

Winner of the Parkin Development Award and nominated for Most Promising Emerging Artist, Committed returns from its sold out season at the NZ Fringe Festival 2018 to make its BATS Theatre debut.

The year was 2010. In suburban Wellington 24 year old Clarissa Chandrahasen was manic. A week before Christmas she would be committed to the psychiatric ward. Her perception of herself as someone immune to mental illness would be shattered by a diagnosis of bipolar disorder.

Packed with charm, wit and pathos, Wellington comedian Clarissa Chandrahasen weaves a true and humorous story of her experiences in the New Zealand mental health system. Blending the painfully personal and the powerfully political, Clarissa illuminates the inadequacies of the country’s mental health system. Gutsy yet playful, Committed is essential viewing for anyone who cares about mental health.

Sound like your cup of tea? Great! You are welcome to stay for some at our post-show wānanga.
