Tomorrow I Was Always a Lion is a theatrical investigation into the nature of psychosis and recovery. Based on the extraordinary memoir by Arnhild Lauveng, it tells a unique personal story of living with and recovering from schizophrenia.

This raw and imaginative new production explores Lauveng's controversial text to challenge our perception and understanding of the condition.

Read verity healey’s HowlRound article on the development of this show: Roads into Portrayals of Mental Health Onstage.

Belarus Free Theatre is the only theatre in Europe banned by its government on political grounds. Following BFT’s furious production of Sarah Kane’s 4.48 Psychosis, which is blacklisted in Belarus, BFT have fearlessly continued to use theatre to excavate social taboos. Tomorrow I Was Always a Lion continues this journey of provoking and challenging the deepest questions of our humanity.

Read more about schizophrenia and this show in Vladimir Shcherban's (director) piece in The Arts Desk.

Supported by The Wellcome Trust Arts Award, Cockayne—Grants for the Arts, and the London Community Foundation. Developed at Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance. Based on I morgen var jeg alltid en løve by Arnhild Lauveng. Reproduced with permission of Cappelen Damm and Skyhorse Publishing.
