We’re really pleased to host a screening of this innovative and award winning documentary. Andrea Dunbar was an acclaimed playwright who died aged 29 from the complications of alcoholism. “The Arbor” explores her life and relationships, using actors lip-synching to interviews with Dunbar and her family. It concentrates on the strained relationship between Dunbar and her daughter Lorraine, and the psychologically complex and divisive phenomenon of memory.
Meeting open to all (including psychiatrists, service users, NHS employees and members of the public). Wine and snacks provided. Free Entry. No need to reserve a place.
