NATIONAL TOUR: Pure Mental by Keith Walsh

Friday 6th November, 2020 - 20:00 - Saturday 5th December, 2020 - 20:00

Riverbank Arts Centre presents a National Tour of PURE MENTAL by Keith Walsh 

Keith Walsh is Pure Mental. Having finished up a 5-year stint presenting on National Radio, in the pressure cooker that is a breakfast show, Keith has finally found a bit of time for himself.  More importantly,  he’s found time to check in with his mental health.

Midlife Crisis? Midlife awakening? Breakdown? We’ll find out. This show is part of his therapy and you’re his therapist! Join him on a journey of introspection and exploration, as he locates his demons and traumas in order to try and find the real person underneath the fuzzy mess of stress. 

Pure Mental is a live theatre show put together with the help of acclaimed performer, writer and director Janet Moran (A Holy Show, Swing and My Romantic History) in the strangest of Covid times –  sometimes working in different rooms, often in different counties.

 But like many others, they got there in the end. We have a show.

‘You will laugh, you might cry, the voices in my head are telling me that you might want to throw rotten fruit at me? Is that still a thing? In the end we’ll all feel a lot better. I hope.’ Keith Walsh
