Ten Days in a Madhouse image

“I said I could, and I would. And I did.” 1887, New York. Reporter Nellie Bly, the pioneer of investigative journalism, fakes “insanity” and is admitted to an asylum to expose the treatment of its patients. Her report shocked the world and shone a light on those society had chosen to forget.
Ten Days in a Madhouse is a warning to us all – reminding us that true power is not measured by how institutions impose authority, but by the compassion they show, especially in moments of crisis.
From the award-nominated creative team that produced Moby Dick, So it Goes Theatre brings Nellie Bly’s incredible true story to life with irreverent humour, immersive sound design and spectacular video design.
Wearing provided headphones, the audience will be transported inside the head of Nellie Bly as she undergoes a terrifying and life changing journey. Captions will be on tablet or handheld device using Difference Engine.
