There's a bed for me in a psychiatric ward.

So no, they can't tick the box for homeless.

I've been ready for discharge for months.

So no, they can't tick the box for madness, either.

No, I'm not mad.

No. I'm not mad.

And they don't have a box to tick for a NoMad.

Using Nell's signature blend of whimsy and intensity, her solo show NoMad based on her own lived experiences is a poetic, dizzying journey through the dissociated mind of one woman who has fallen through society’s cracks too many times.

With devastating authenticity, disarming humour and, ultimately, hope, the show demands the question: who gets to decide what madness is in a society that treats people like this?

“a mercurial, knotty and raw look at what it means to be homeless by the incredible Nell Hardy. I was blown away”
