At some point in our lives, one in four people will experience some form of mental health distress. That means that you’re more than likely to know someone who suffers from some form of mental health problem. Despite the fact that it’s such a common occurrence, though, and that mental health issues do not (and should not) define who we are as people, there are still an absolute multitude of negative perceptions and stereotypes surrounding people with these issues.

In The Art of Not Getting Lost, writer and director Vici Wreford-Sinnott is attempting to draw attention to our own perceptions and the fact that, at some points in our lives, we can all be lost and want to make our mark on the world in any way possible. Within it, everyone and no-one have made their home in the hidden tunnels of Bakerloo Station, creating their own, fictional, Lost Property department. But the question is: are they hiding or are they being hidden? The Art of Not Getting Lost promises to be an enlightening and engaging examination into social attitudes surrounding our own mental state of mind.

The Art of Not Getting Lost comes to Stockton’s Arc on Wednesday 20th May.
