THE TWINS wins “Mental Health Awareness Award”

Congratulations to THE TWINS, winners of the Adelaide Fringe “Mental Health Awareness Award” presented by mindshare.

From mindshare reviewer Tabitha Lean:

“The Twins is a masterpiece of brilliance: taking the heaviness of life and lifting it up into the light. Let’s face it, it’s not easy to talk about suicide, insecurities and addiction and make it comfortable and relatable and respectable, or even, entertaining – but this show did all of that. It took painful lived experience and cast them onto the stage in a way that drew people into an alternate world of Fleet and Darling’s making and allowed us to make our homes there to reflect: to confront our own privileges, contemplate our own diffidence and own our individual experiences. Both Darling and Fleet are spectacular, their energy and chemistry on stage is captivating and their performance kept me engaged right until the very end.”

We also want to celebrate the many, many outstanding Adelaide Fringe productions in 2021 that are raising awareness and reducing stigma for those of us affected by mental illness.

Thank you for being so open and generous with your stories and lived experiences. These are some of our most powerful tools in expanding the mental health conversation, and it has been a real honour to celebrate your voices with this award.
