Invisible Girl is one girl’s journey through mental health issues, abuse, trauma and recovery. Through Charlotte’s eyes and experiences of mental health recovery we learn the importance of being human, and about how hope, understanding and love are the most important human gifts. We are all broken in some shape or another.
Rehearsed reading followed by a short Q&A.
Collette Rockett Dalgarno is a newly emerging playwright from Waterford City, originally from Kinsealy, Co. Dublin. However, as one of her surnames may reveal she has strong family ties with Waterford. Collette has been involved in the theatre and art scene in Waterford for the past nine years, volunteering and performing with many of the city’s arts organisations; including Waterford Youth Arts, Déise Musical Society, Spraoi, Rogue Gallery and more recently as part of Modwords – writing community.
Collette first submitted Invisible Girl to the Modwords festival in 2018, under their ‘short plays’ category. She has found writing Invisible Girl and the ability to voice the realities of both her own personal experiences and the lives of those she helped as a mental health advocate. Bringing this new work to the stage has been an extremely hopeful and loving journey.
