MENTAL ILLNESS ON THE FRINGE



Tough topic tackled at Melbourne Fringe Festival by Neighbours star

Neighbours regular Scott Major, is just as accomplished behind-the-camera having directed his Ramsay Street co-stars in a number of episodes in the past year. From September 28 to Oct 7, Scott will switch his talents to the stage for the Melbourne Fringe Festival when he directs “Death in a box …. one pussy’s tale!” at Tony Starr’s Kitten Club, 1/267 Little Collins Street, Melbourne.


Certainly a different tone to Scott’s usual work on Neighbours, the play is the real life story of Melbourne couple, Mandie Combe and partner Tony Johannsen, and Mandie’s struggle with mental illness.


“Neighbours has touched on mental illness over the years, but not quite like this, the freedom of the stage has allowed us to tell this very touching, funny, confronting and real story in a very unique way,” said Scott. “This darkly comedic cabaret will leave you questioning your understanding of mental illness.”
