Witty, fierce and fearless. Mad Women is a play inspired by three outstanding Latin American women artists living with bipolar disorder. It is a fictional portrayal of Frida Kahlo, Violeta Parra and Judith Marquez’s mental health journeys from life to death, in the form of intertwined monologues.

As a unique creative experiment, Mad Women has developed two versions of a brand-new play in parallel; one starred by professional actors and one by community members from underserved and underrepresented groups of women. The same director and creative team lead the process, to develop an innovative, inclusive and diverse experience.

The play fights the stereotypes and stigmas of what it has historically meant to “be a woman” with mental health challenges. It is a brutally honest conversation about sexuality, motherhood, gender oppression and the role of women in the arts. The play was written through an R&D process that involved workshops with women from underserved communities and explorative rehearsals with trained performers linked to mental health conditions.
