The Suicide Monologues are a series of thirteen short films which present the testimonies of people who have been affected by suicide and attempted suicide. The films will be streamed online from Saturday 19th September 2020.
The monologues are the true stories of a diverse group of people which are voiced in the films by a range of actors including Julian Richings, Cathy Shipton, Ian Reddington, Alice Barlow, Blue Merrick, and Deepak Verma.
The aim of The Suicide Monologues is to challenge stigma around this complex subject, increase understanding, and create discussion.
The project is a collaboration between Kathryn Littlewood, Penny Capper, Charlie Barnes, Dave McClelland, Brendan Stone and others. It was funded by the University of Sheffield, and supported by the mental health charity Sheffield Flourish.
You’ll be able to view the films at this link on Saturday 19th September at 19.00.
