This week, I had the privilege of sharing the platform with Cherrelle Skeete (actress and found of Blacktress.co.uk), long-time RSC stalwart actor Sam Marks and director Zoé Ford, currently Associate Director for Sam Mendes on the Lehman Trilogy at the National Theatre.
Curated by The Mono Box's Polly Bennett, the panel's discussion were kicked off by two questions about mental health and issues of self-worth. Those two questions took half an hour to address, and I thought I would let you listen to how the conversation unfolded. I found it fascinating, and hopefully you will, too. It is apparent that we, in this industry, find it very hard to talk about how we are feeling, and yet we are expected to bare our souls in front of a camera or audience.
