All of Me (the possibility of future splendour)

Running time: 1h 10min approx
All of Me is strange and poetic, exploring depression against a backdrop of broken glitterballs. In 2012, Caroline’s multi-award winning piece Mess examined the struggle with anorexia shared by both Caroline and the show’s protagonist Josephine. At the end of Mess, Josephine celebrates life despite her imperfect recovery from the illness: now, years later, Caroline is alone on stage without her character to hide behind.
Caroline has collaborated with composer James Atherton and sound designer Elena Peña to create a live soundscape and songs, as well as working with Professor Matthew Broome (Director of the Institute for Mental Health), Dr Alexandra Pitman (Senior Clinical Lecturer at University College London) and STOP Suicide, an award-winning Mind campaign based in Peterborough and Cambridge, during the making of the show.
