In Two Minds is a deeply personal and life-affirming production by Limerick-based theatre artist Joanne Ryan which explores the realities of living with bipolar disorder and its effects on relationships and family.

The play was instigated and inspired by Joanne’s mother, who lived with bipolar disorder, and who was a key collaborator in the development process. In Two Minds finds insight in the darkness, humour in the pain, and tenderness in difficult family dynamics.

In Two Minds had its World Premiere in October 2023 as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival and is coming to Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August 2024 as part of the Culture Ireland Edinburgh Showcase. It also forms part of Healing Arts Scotland, a week-long celebration of arts and health from 19-23 August.

Joanne Ryan was awarded the Documentation Bursary 2023 to produce a radio documentary about In Two Minds, with Diarmuid McIntyre of Grey Heron Media. The release date will be announced on later this year.
