About Ravenscourt

Idealistic and driven, Lydia is a mental-health professional determined to make a difference. She has given up her comfortable job in private practice to become a therapist at Ravenscourt – where society’s most in need can receive treatment. And making progress in treating Daniel – an angry and depressed young man who everybody else has written off – feels genuinely worthwhile. But as Lydia settles into the job she starts to realise how high the odds are stacked against her being able to really change things for Daniel. Maybe the cynics are right: the system is broken and nobody cares… Georgina Burns is an alumnus of Hampstead Theatre’s INSPIRE course for emerging playwrights; Ravenscourt is her first produced full length play. Hampstead Theatre’s Associate Artist Tessa Walker (Big Big Sky, The Glad Game) directs. Content: This production contains strong language and ableist language. This production also contains references to depression and anxiety, suicide and self-harm, and drug addiction.
