Four in Four are offering people the chance to engage with an authentic lived experience of receiving a Mental Health diagnosis, through the medium of theatre.
The critically acclaimed 70-minute autobiographical show Gods & Kings has been awarded Arts Council Wales funding to tour Wales in October/November 2019, in partnership with Riverfront Arts and supported by the National Centre for Mental Health (NCMH).
The NCMH have kindly donated £150 per venue to provide free/subsidised tickets for mental health service users to engage with this project.
Following every performance we will be hosting a post-show discussion about the themes raised in the play. To date, confirmed speakers include Services Users, the NCMH, Public Health Wales (PHW) and the Mental Health Foundation (MHF) and many more health professionals and charities across Wales.

To support our audiences and ensure Duty of Care to all, Four in Four has created a Duty of Care ‘Mental Health Access Guidelines’ document and are providing staff training for venues. We are also displaying national and local mental health resources in the foyer and on our website.
If you are interested in seeing the show, being a post-show panel member or know of any mental health service users interested in seeing the show and being a part of the post-show conversations as audience members, then please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to the tour, Gods & Kings is being published by Oberon Books. It will also include a second section that is based on Arts, Health and Science. This contains additional research material from NCMH.
