The More You Ignore Me is both a poignant and darkly funny coming-of-age story about dysfunctional family life in 1980s rural England that’s set to the music of The Smiths.
The story follows Gina (Sheridan Smith), whose efforts to be a loving mother and wife are undermined by her declining mental health and her growing obsession with the local weatherman, and her daughter Alice (Ella Hunt), who struggles to relate to her mum. In the meantime, Gina develops De Clerambault Syndrome, in which she imagines grand passions on behalf of others and reads secret meanings into ordinary conversations.
Written by, and starring, Jo Brand, The More You Ignore Me is based on her critically acclaimed novel of the same name and uses all the insight gained during her years as a psychiatric health worker.
The More You Ignore Me is being screened at St James Cavalier tomorrow at 7.30pm. Tickets are available online from http://kreattivita.org .
