Beaming live from our studios, directly to you!

Back by popular demand, this piece is now available featuring either a male or female actor in the lead role.

What do you do when you have a great life – wonderful family, good marks, and awesome friends – but getting up and facing each day feels like a battle? Green Thumb’s award-winning hit show offers a realistic, honest, and bitingly funny look at the difference between ‘teen angst’ and mental illness. Reimagined for a digital format in the style of a confessional online video, STILL• FALLING is performed by a single actor portraying Nina or Nick as they find themselves slipping into a dark reality they cannot understand, and as they search for a light to lead them out of the dark. In the wake of a pandemic and rising levels of depression and anxiety in young people, STILL • FALLING is a timely and important conversation starter.

Every show is performed live and is followed by a Q&A period. When you book a performance of STILL • FALLING, you also receive our comprehensive study guide, with pre and post show activities, questions, and resources for further support.

Content advisory: STILL• FALLING is an honest look at one person’s experience of anxiety and depression, and includes scenes depicting panic attacks, deep depression, and non-suicidal self-harm. Some scenes may prove to be an intense experience/emotionally triggering for some viewers.
