A RED DOOR PUBLICATION
Maddy is turning 19 and her sister returns to the family home for the birthday. She finds Maddy very changed. Her world is becoming increasingly bizarre as psychic forces beyond her control take hold. She is showing signs of schizophrenia.
The family begins to split apart as each tries to deal with the situation in radically different ways. Desperate to obey the demands of her inner voices, Maddy proceeds regardless, dragging the whole family towards a tragic outcome. Madeleine brings the uncertain world of mental illness into presence and provides a space within which these concerns can become a reality.
