About Book

I’m older now. I’m stronger. How do you know I haven’t sorted out some natural equilibrium all on my own? Maybe we should try it, just for a bit.

Diagnosed with a severe mental illness as a child, Anna was prescribed a cocktail of pills. Now a young adult, she’s wondering how life might feel without them. But as she tries to move beyond the labels that have defined her, her mother feels compelled to intervene – threatening the fragile balance they have both fought so hard to maintain.

Winner of a Judges Award at the 2015 Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting, Kendall Feaver’s The Almighty Sometimes premiered at the Royal Exchange, Manchester, in February 2018.
