Winner of the Neurodiverse Review Birds of Paradise ‘Exceptional Theatre’ Award 2023
OffFest Award Nomination for its Edinburgh Fringe run 2023
You could call this the ‘Homecoming’ for SAD-VENTS because creator Eleanor Hill was born in Greenwich. Love a fun fact!
BRING YOUR PHONES! Take pictures, take videos, livestream the whole thing if you like.
Not for the fainthearted, this ‘endearingly, recklessly look-no-hands bold’ (Lyn Gardner) tragicomedy ‘makes Fleabag look like CBeebies.’

Be prepared for DM sliding, TikTok dancing, social stalking and endless oversharing.
SAD-VENTS is ‘at once very raw and technically ambitious’ (The Guardian) using live streaming, projections and music to explore the hilarious and heartbreaking realities of mental health & trauma, in the age of social media, as it seeks to answer the ultimate question: do we consume it or does it consume us?
