Cricklewood therapist shows mental dating is all the same
New play follows tribulations of mental health patients finding love only for their therapist to discover she is afflicted by the same problems
NEW play Nuts and dates follows the trials of a group of people with mental health issues getting advice on how to find love.
However it soon becomes clear that the problems they face are little different to the rest of us.
And as the therapist dishes out the advice she reflects on her problems at home.
Debutant writer Sarah Davis was inspired to pen the comedy after helping a group of sufferers explore the challenges and solutions in meeting someone.

Sarah, a drama and group therapist, said: “This story mirrors a little of my professional life. I began to ask myself how a group could be used for people to express their hopes in finding relationships and how the therapist could give them practical pointers along the way.
“But as I was writing, it seemed playful to allow the group to find resolutions while the apparently stable group leader began to question issues in her own life.”
