Scene of Intervention – End of the Game



In February and March 2021 Patricia Byrne, Artistic Director of Sole Purpose Productions, worked with Solace House Suicide Prevention Centre in New York to deliver an international five week online project which explored themes of mental health and suicide prevention using theatre and video and featuring the award winning play ‘Blinkered’.

The project culminated in the development of four short scenarios depicting ‘Scenes of Intervention’, these are short scenes created by the participants which show situations in which you might ask the question ‘have you been having thoughts about suicide?’. This is not an easy question to ask, the scenes aim to show that it is ok to ask this question and that it can help the person concerned to get the support they need.

The project was supported by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
