Bordering on Chaos
Written and produced by Lucy C Hayward
Directed by Katherine Wooton and Lucy C Hayward
Supported by TLC and Julia Thomas through Shape Arts Free Reads
One night everything change but the last six months makes you question who has all the control.
It’s a damp and cold evening and Mags and Karla are stuck in the taxi office waiting for Karla to be picked up. They have each tried to process the loss in different ways but it doesn't seem to be helping.
As the evening wears on the bond which ties them starts to break apart and as Gemma arrives there's no turning back. You can suck up your pain but there’s always a breaking point.
Bordering on Chaos explores the different ways people choose to deal with grief. Some will reach out for medical support, some self diagnose and others are put on a route but don't understand how it is meant to benefit them.
