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.
