An ARC Stockton Production
Tensile Strength (or How to Survive at Your Wit’s End)
Written and Performed by Holly Gallagher
Directed by Daniel Bye

Tensile Strength (or How to Survive at Your Wit's End) is a performance about Stress. And figuring out why so many of us feel it to an unhealthy degree. It's about fear, pressure, uncertainty. It's about sadness and mental health and how we help ourselves. It's about feeling like things are all A Bit Too Much and then the cat goes missing.
This is a show about the world we live in now, and will prove essential viewing in a society that just can't seem to relax anymore.

‘Simply and elegantly staged, Tensile Strength is an assured and gently powerful piece of work. Finding dignity and poetry in the quiet resilience of everyday life, Holly Gallagher takes the stories of ordinary people and elevates them to the level of the profound. This is an excellent offering from an exciting new storyteller.’ – Fringe First Winner Kieran Hurley
