‘Just Relax’ is a new play inspired by the writer's own journey with anxiety, that delves into the minds and lives of people experiencing anxiety and mental health challenges. It explores real peoples' experiences of anxiety; the ups, the downs, the madness, and most importantly, the truth.

Anxiety has become an ever growing issue in today’s society and it comes in many forms. Some of us have to battle with it every day and it can be crippling. Some people may experience short bouts of it, anxiety has a tendency to creep up on you when you least expect it.

But what is it?

What does it mean?

Why do I have it?

Where does it come from?

Using the words of the honest and brave people who opened up about their experiences, 'Just Relax' explores anxiety, grief, therapy, OCD, self-harm & depression.

Theatrical and, at times hard-hitting, though often with a sprinkling of humour to offer some light relief, this new play will resonate strongly with many of us who have battled with our own thoughts.
