Stairway is a powerful new comedy drama being staged for the first time in 2021.

Simon’s friend just got in touch. Wants a favour. Some medical supplies need fetching from Boots, carrying up the stairs to the friend’s flat. Simon works nearby, has no lunch plans. Says he can help.

Turns out the friend is seriously ill. Turns out he’s on his own. Turns out Simon’s favour is the start of something much bigger. The start of a six-month journey through hardship, heartbreak and humility. Through friendship, fury and faith. A journey in search of meaning in the madness, light in the darkness, and love for the long haul. One step at a time.

Mental health and Christianity can be difficult conversations – this tackles both.

Stairway aims to

  • raise awareness of mental health issues (and spiritual health issues) with honesty, openness, compassion and humour
  • offer empathy, strength and hope to those in difficulty through sharing of real-life testimony
  • add its voice to the growing number of initiatives intent on removing the stigma from mental health illness and
  • offer support, encouragement and resources to those affected

For when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Corinthians 12:10
