We know that there are many good causes vying for your attention and support, so why us? In 2017 we wrote and produced a play called Fragile Man which focused on male suicide. Last year UnSpoken had a similar theme, raising the profile of childhood abuse and violence against women. Both plays highlight the pervasive impact of the silence that surrounds these and other mental and emotional health issues, often accompanied by feelings of shame. We are already bringing The Ebbing Hour into production and working on a number of other projects aimed at highlighting #MentalHealthMatters.
By making dramas aimed at raising the profile of #MentalHealthMatters we hope, in some small way, to take the lid of the issues that remain 'unspoken', to stimulate debate, highlight the need to talk and combat the stereotypes. We are always seeking additional funding for this important and artistically creative approach, to help us tour our current productions and develop new ones.
Softsod Productions supports the White Ribbon movement, campaigning to end male violence against women and CALM, the campaign against living miserably. Find out more here, whiteribbon.org.uk and here thecalmzone.net.
Based in South Wales and Bristol, Softsod Productions specialise in unique, thought-provoking and moving drama for theatre. We pride ourselves on original scripts and great story-telling, told in intimate settings with atmospheric staging, production and soundscapes. We want it to be personal and to bring audiences with us as we explore the human condition, the conflict of mental and emotional health, the necessity of belonging and our instincts for survival.
We focus heavily on a well crafted, meaningful plot, creative directing, outstanding performance and high quality production. Our first two psychological dramas, Fragile Man (2017) and UnSpoken (2018) have been true to our aspirations, with huge impact, playing to packed houses at the Bath Fringe and at the world renowned Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
