Fresh from a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe, musician, performer and writer Matt McGuinness presents his debut show as part of a UK tour. Uplifting, anthemic tunes punctuate stories and conversation, shedding light on mental health with self-deprecating honesty and dark humour. This show is for anyone who has ever overcome one of life’s many challenges or is battling to do so. A 55 minute show with time to continue the chat afterwards.

We Are What We Overcome is supported by Mind, The Samaritans and the Mental Health Foundation.
We want to encourage more people to come and see shows at Forest Arts, more often. Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.
Tickets will be available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.
All money collected will help us pay the artists who have performed, and we therefore hope you will give generously.
Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the show starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay by leaving a cash donation in the envelope on your seat.
