Trade in Lunacy
Cure, containment, corruption: a theatrical examination of 18th century private asylums.

The Trade in Lunacy was a chamber theatre performance inspired by the practices of treating
those diagnosed with ‘diseases of the mind’ in private houses set up by individual entrepreneurs to generate
income and enhance claims to cure.
