Dylan Tighe, director of The Irish Times Theatre Award-winning No Worst There Is None, returns to the Festival with this stirring new project which explores depression and the concept of “mental illness” with courage, imagination and humour.

Sharing his vision of a system that dismissed options and choice, this alternative opera is based on songs from Dylan’s debut album also titled RECORD. Using medical records, autobiography, fiction and 16mm film, RECORD is a brave and evocative production, which speaks honestly about what society sometimes deems taboo.

"Sharply poignant, politically provocative and deliciously wry. Mining his autobiography for theatrical substance is a brave act, but Tighe's ability to treat it with a surprisingly light touch seems braver still." THE IRISH TIMES
