One In Five for 29 September 2013
In 1999 Karl Hitchcock began hearing the voices of Templar Knights during periods of psychosis. At the same time he was grappling with episodes of both mania and depression. Karl decided to write a play about his experiences, entitled "Manic to Madness", with the help of actor and friend Nic Farra. The show debuts in Christchurch tonightas part of Mental Health Awareness Week. Katy Gosset drops in on rehearsals and talks to Karl and Nic about a creative process that has also proved cathartic.
