A THEATRE staging a play about mental illness will offer people the chance to discuss the topic before the performance.

Declaration — which looks at ADHD, mental health and diagnosis in the 21st century — will be performed at Doncaster’s Cast Theatre on Wednesday, June 7, but prior to the show there will be a bid to raise awareness.

Cast has linked up with charity HealthWatch Doncaster to host a free pre-show event from 6.30pm to give people the chance to find out more about the mental health provision and support available.

The event is free and people are invited to stay for Declaration with subsidised £5 tickets available.

The play centres on Sarah Emmott’s story after she was diagnosed with ADHD as an adult.

Tickets for the play cost £10.50 for adults or £9 for concessions which are available from the box office in person, by calling 01302 303959 or visiting

To access the £5 ticket people should quote HWCAST17 when purchasing.
