Sam Underwood (TV’s Fear The Walking Dead, Homeland, Dexter, The Following) is mostly manic, and definitely depressed! 

Losing Days follows his hilarious and harrowing journey of losing his f*cking mind - and finding it again - set to the tunes that got him through. Featuring live music from Frank Turner’s ‘Tape Deck Heart’ album, and the debut performance of The Boxroom Larrys. 

1 in 3 people suffer with some form of mental illness in the course of their life. For such a pervasive condition in society, opening up about the internal struggle many people deal with on a day to day basis is still surrounded by skepticism, shame and silence. Losing Days is a true story seen through a shattered kaleidoscope, delving into the superhero struggle of mental illness, and smashing the taboos that surround it.

 Thank You to Frank Turner, Bryony Kimmings and, more importantly, Valorie Curry.

REVIEWS

"Underwood is an energetic and like-able speaker." 

"This is the essence of Losing Days: it is the story of realisation, of the arduous and winding road to acceptance."

- The 730 Review,  4 Stars

"This is a brave performance, especially as Sam admits that, in his industry, people – especially men – don’t tend to talk about their problems."
