When Mel decides to turn his struggles with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) into a stand-up comedy routine, it seems the lemons are finally turning into lemonade – until his ex, Mags, appears in the audience and wants to reconcile – as part of the routine. Love has never felt so much like heckling in the world premiere of this darkly hilarious slice of ramped-up life.

This world premiere of ALL THE RAGE draws on interviews with people with lived experience of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), and is unique in its focus on some of the more humourous aspects of this mental health diagnosis. The two composite characters represent a cross-section of issues related to living with BPD, including relationship struggles, trauma, impulsivity and emotional overwhelm. The play is just one of a number of research-related performances written by Daniel X Harris, with the aim of better sharing the less stereotypical experiences of those from minoritarian communities.
