Have you ever felt like you were losing your mind? Lewis has.
In 2018, Lewis nearly died. Depression, anxiety, and the side effects of his prescription medication left him hoping for a fiery way out of this world. Four years on, and finally ready to confess his sins, Lewis will take you back in time and explore how, and why, Tuesday 13th February became the day he decided to live.
If you like theatre that is disruptive, sincere, and gay, you will love I Am the Bomb!
Combining personal stories with soundscapes, confessions of love, and recreations of hallucinatory visions, Lewis creates a compelling, profound and joyous autobiographical work about being gay, being mad, and unexploded WWII bombs.
“This work is an authentic, honest light shining bright, exploding through a painful neurological and queer barricade, willing us to hear ourselves, get well, live.” - Bryony Kimmings
