The Story (Copyright 2019)

Welcome to Welcome: a recovery centre, hidden away in a country village off the south coast of England.  

When 18 year old Kat arrives, twinned with her outspoken, sassy co-pilot Anorexia, they're sure they've landed in the wrong place.  

It takes the fearless, wacky, recovering inpatients of Welcome, in particular 30 year-old, bi-polar sufferer, Jack, to show Kat the strength she is capable of.  

A black, love-triangular comedy, Welcome is a story which shines a light on one girl's battle with a mental illness so enticing and suffocating it takes an almost-miracle to overcome it.  Doors of taboo are blown open, showing this disorder in all its hilarity and desperation from various angles: family, therapist, Kat and the illness itself, personified.
