CAN I HELP YOU?

Presented by Playing On

Bringing to life Philip Osment’s final play, Can I Help You? is a magical realist examination of the role race and gender have to play in mental health and suicide.  

An off-duty English policeman is about to throw himself off Beachy Head when he is met by a Ghanaian woman carrying a laundry bag and a cat box. Over the course of one night, two disparate characters learn what it truly means to be touched by the magic of hope.  

Join Playing ON at one of the many wraparound workshops and events across the run. From pre and post show workshops to NHS night, from panel discussions to an evening celebration of Philip’s Osment’s work, there is an event for everyone. 

“Its impact on the audience was startling and, for me, it was a most convincing theatrical representation of life in prison.” – Sir Ian McKellen on INSIDE
